Keep It Home For The Holidays

What is Keep it Home for the Holidays?


The Keep it Home for the Holidays campaign, presented by The Dubuque Area Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Telegraph Herald, 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.

This year, The Dubuque Area Chamber of Commerce and Telegraph Herald are partnering up to bring you more ways to highlight your business during the busiest shopping time of the year. The Chamber will continue to offer to participants radio commercials on Townsquare Media, Queen B Radio, and Radio Dubuque, 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.

New this year, you will have a full-color ad in a special Holiday Events & Gift Guide magazine presented by Telegraph Herald and every participating business will be handing out reusable bags with the Keep if Home for the Holidays logo to customers. (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.

Each participating business will donate 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 shop in your store. 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. We will draw winners to receive the gift certificates provided by the participating businesses on Monday, December 17, plenty of time for last minute holiday shopping!
