People who spend $200 at certain Seward businesses may be eligible to receive $100 in vouchers to be spent at those businesses under the city’s new shop local program, called “Shop Seward.”
Shoppers who spend $200 at participating businesses from Feb. 11 to Feb. 16 will receive four $25 vouchers. The $200 must be spent on discretionary items such as clothing, vacation lodging, sporting goods and art. Non-discretionary items that do not qualify for the program include things like groceries, utilities and prescriptions.
Shoppers may submit as many receipts as is necessary to reach $200. Taxes, delivery fees, tips and shipping are not eligible for the purchase total. Shoppers not in Seward during President’s Day Weekend can also make purchases and submit receipts online. Vouchers must be spent by March 31.
As of Friday, participating businesses included the Alaska SeaLife Center, Seward Ocean Excursions, Resurrect Art Coffee House and 13 Ravens Coffee & Books, among others.
