Keep It Home For The Holidays

What is Keep it Home for the Holidays?


The Keep it Home for the Holidays campaign is a multi-media advertising campaign designed to bring traffic to local businesses during the busiest shopping season of the year! It's also meant to bring awareness and educate our community on the importance of keeping shopping dollars in the Dubuque area during the holidays and year-round.

For every $100 spent at a locally owned business, $68 stays in the community.

The Dubuque Area Chamber of Commerce strives to bring you more ways to highlight your business during the busiest shopping time of the year. The Chamber offers participants a right rail ad on the Chamber website (designed by you), your business logo included on a special Keep It Home for the Holidays page of the Chamber website, along with your business featured on social media. Each business will also be mentioned in radio commercials on Townsquare Media, Queen B Radio, and Radio Dubuque.

You will need to provide your web ad to Justine by Friday, November 2. We will need the ad in three sizes to be viewed on mobile, tablet, and desktop devices. Sizes are: 200x200 pixels, 250x250 pixels, and 300x250 pixels. You must also email an EPS copy or high resolution JPG of your logo to Justine at the Chamber, jehlers@dubuquechamber.com

New this year, you will receive reusable Keep if Home for the Holidays bags to hand out to customers during the campaign. (Limited quantities)

Keep it Home for the Holidays is to remind shoppers on a regular basis about the value of keeping their dollars local where they’ll find the best gifts and friendly, personal service.

You win. Your customers win.

The cost to participate is $100 for each participating business along with a gift certificate valued at $50 for a drawing at the end of the campaign. Customers will be eligible to enter their name in the drawing when they visit your location. The Chamber will provide a raffle box and entry forms at each business for shoppers to sign-up.

Customers will have until the end of the campaign, Friday, December 14, to register to win. Representatives will be by to pick up the boxes that day.

We will draw winner(s) to receive the gift certificates provided by the participating businesses on Monday, December 17, plenty of time for last minute holiday shopping!
