‘Shop Local’ passport program launches with the RiverBend Growth Association

The RiverBend Growth Association “Shop Local” passport program encourages the public to shop locally. Twenty-two advertisers in the shop local booklet want you to visit them, make a purchase, and receive a stamp on your passport.

The passport can be found and printed on the RBGA Facebook page at

The program runs through Dec. 1, 2023. When you receive five stamps in your passport, enter the drawing at the store you’re visiting. A drawing will be held Dec. 4, 2023, for a $250 shopping spree.
