Love Local, Shop Local this Valentine Season

Visit Columbia and Maury Alliance are teaming up to encourage people to shop and support local businesses during the Valentine season of love. Everyone is eligible to ‘show their love for local’ on social media for a chance to win big. February 1, 2021 kicks off a two-week campaign “For the Love of Columbia” giving everyone the opportunity to show their pride and share their love for Muletown while supporting local businesses by snapping a selfie and posting it on their social media with the hash tag #ForTheLoveofColumbia for a chance to win a $100 Local First gift card.

The rules to participate are: Take a selfie at a local business, any business, post it to your social media, and include the hash tag #ForTheLoveOfColumbia for a chance to win a $100 Local First Gift Card donated by Maury Alliance, redeemable at participating businesses. No purchase necessary to participate. Eligible social media posts must include the hash tag #ForTheLoveOfColumbia for the photo to be tracked on social media. All photos must be posted by February 15, 2021 at 4pm for a chance to win the $100 gift card. The selfie posts will also be displayed in an interactive online gallery for the public to view on the Visit Columbia website homepage at www.visitcolumbiatn.com. You can find a list of Local First gift card participating businesses at www.mauryalliance.com/local-first-cards. The winner will be selected in a random drawing and announced Tuesday, February 16, 2021 on the Visit Columbia Facebook page @VisitColumbiaTN.

Visit Columbia and Maury Alliance want everyone to celebrate the season of love by shopping and supporting local businesses each and every day. Many businesses will be hosting special events and promotions around Valentines such as dinner and drink specials, baking classes, great shopping, and stay discounts.
