ELBA, Ala. (WDHN) — If you’re not wanting to do your shopping online, a unique effort to get people to shop locally has taken off beyond anyone’s wildest imagination in Western Coffee County.

Grab a mistletoe card and shop the Elba Mistletoe Marketplace through Thursday, December 15th.

Get the card initiated by the participating businesses in the city. Then turn the card to the Elba Chamber Of Commerce office drop box on Factory Avenue.

Chamber Director, Sandy Bynum-Williams says one card will be drawn before Christmas, and the winner will receive a prize basket which will include a number of gifts donated by participating businesses in the community.

By the way, one does not have to make a purchase in order to get their mistletoe card signed
by a business.

Williams says the venture has been a great way to keep area residents shopping locally.
