The Ellensburg Downtown Association is proud to introduce, SHOP LOCAL Contest! Our hope is to give the community a little extra incentive to connect and support our local businesses this holiday season.

Not only does it feel good to support our local businesses, but do you realize that by shopping local you are:

  • Nurturing a sense of community.
  • With supply chain issues you do not have to worry about getting your gift on time.
  • Keeping money in the local economy to pay for city amenities and infrastructure, and support local libraries, services, schools, and non-profits. (Local businesses support local non-profits)
  • Supporting the environment by reducing waste and conserving energy.
