Shop DeMotte & Win!

The DeMotte Chamber has decided to extend the Holiday shopping extravaganza. It began on Small Business Saturday, November 27th and will now continue until Monday, January 31st.

“We appreciate shopping locally, but it’s really something special to all merchants when Holiday shopping is kept local.” commented Diva Rish, Chamber Executive Director.

Here is how the program works. From November 27th to January 31st, shoppers simply collect and save all their receipts from their local shopping efforts. For every $200 spent, you get an entry to win the Grand Prize. Last year’s grand prize was valued at over $500 and consisted of gifts and gift cards from the local businesses. There are no special sales, no special stores to shop; wherever you spend money in DeMotte, is eligible. Gifts, Dining, Groceries, Insurance, Fuel, Repairs, Services, Cars, Homes, Memberships, Prescriptions, even the DeMotte Public Library. Because there are out-of-town businesses such as NIPSCO, NITCO, Verizon and Jasper County REMC on the Chamber membership rolls, their customers can include one month of these services to include in their receipt gatherings.

The drawing for Shop DeMotte & Win will take place on Tuesday, February 1. Eligible event receipts may be turned in to the Chamber office until January 31. Copies of receipts will be made at the Chamber office. You can also scan and e-mail receipts to

The Chamber office is located at the DeMotte Plaza between Shear Designs and Strack and Van Til. Office hours are Mon-Tue-Thu-Fri from 9am-1pm and closed on Wednesdays. You can also call the Chamber for more details at 219-987-5800.
