Shop Local Campaign Aims High

Posted July 13, 2020

Support local businesses in Johnson County, and earn gift cards while doing it. It’s as easy as 1-2-3! Spend $150 during our Holding Our Own Shop Local campaign, submit your receipts, and receive a FREE $20 gift card of your choice.

The Project Better Together team has created a new campaign to encourage and motivate local spending at Johnson County businesses. The Iowa City Downtown District, Think Iowa City, the Iowa City Area Development Group, and the Iowa City Area Business Partnership created the Holding Our Own Shop Local program. The Holding Our Own campaign includes a gift card program that intends to incentivize over $1,000,000 in local spending throughout Johnson County communities.

Area partners in the program include: MidWestOne Bank, West Bank, GreenState Credit Union, Great Western Bank, Hills Bank, Two Rivers Bank, U.S. Bank, and CBI Bank & Trust.  Their support has enabled us to build a sizable and concerted effort to drive business and create meaningful impact to our community.
