“Birch Bay Shops Local” is an initiative to promote local businesses in our community and incentivize shoppers to spend money locally.

For four weeks, beginning Tuesday, November 24 and ending December 22nd we are asking you to spend money at local Birch Bay Businesses, then post a photo promoting that business and use the hashtags #BirchBayShopsLocal202 and #ShopWhatcom for a chance to win a $25 gift card to a local Birch Bay Business. Winners will be contacted via social media and the gift card will be available for pick up at the Birch Bay Visitor Center or mailed to the recipient. The contest weeks and draw dates are listed below:
