Shopping locally, especially at small businesses, in our neighborhoods (1) helps maintain the diversity of stores on the mid-south side, (2) builds strong neighborhoods, (3) creates jobs, (4) provides funds for more City services through sales tax, and (5) promotes community development.

Shopping locally could also make you a winner of the 2021 Southside Shopping Spree! This year’s winner walks away with the Grand Prize of $500 in gift cards from participating businesses.


It’s simple. Make an eligible purchase of $15.00 or more at one of the 2021 participating businesses. Register your purchase online. SAVE YOUR RECEIPT.


Purchases made in person or online of $15.00 or more must be made November 8 – December 6, 2021 to qualify. Purchase amount is based on total receipt including tax. You may enter as many eligible receipts as you like before 12:00 pm Noon on December 7, 2021.


Grand Prize of $500.00 will be arranged as gift cards redeemable at participating businesses. Winner may determine the preferred split of the total value, otherwise one single participating business may be selected for the total amount. Each participating business dictates its own gift card expiration dates and policies governing unused balances. Winner should review policies of the participating business prior to the disbursement of the Grand Prize.


The name drawn will be contacted by phone and/or e-mail by the organizer. The winner must present their eligible receipt by Friday, December 10th at 3:00pm to claim the Grand Prize. If the name drawn does not have an eligible receipt or cannot present the eligible receipt on time, a new name will be drawn and given the same amount of time to respond and claim the Grand Prize.


In eligible purchases include any US government regulated products such as gasoline, cigarettes, lottery tickets, prescription products, beer and/or liquor.


This promotion is hosted by the South East Chicago Commission, non-profit organization, in partnership with Special Service Area #61. Organizer reserves the right to give away additional prizes and/or host additional drawings that have no impact on the Grand Prize.
