The Altus Chamber of Commerce gets crazy excited about the Crazy Days event and encourages shoppers to spend their money locally. Shopping with local merchants supports and grows our local economy. According to Rodger Kerr, President and CEO of the Altus Chamber of Commerce, reminding our community that shopping with local merchants supports and grows our local economy is a message worth repeating over and over again.  Kerr says, “Crazy Days is meant to be a fun time as school begins and we near the end of summer.  In years past, Crazy Days was a festive event and we want to continue that tradition.”

During this years’ Crazy Days weekend, one lucky shopper will win a cash prize.  The Altus Chamber of Commerce is hosting a drawing for $500 to a shopper who brings in a receipt from one of the participating Crazy Days retailers.  Bring a receipt from a purchase made at a participating store dated August 10 or 11, 2018, to the Altus Chamber of Commerce at 301 West Commerce, on the Monday or Tuesday following Crazy Days, August 13 or 14 by 5:00 PM.  One winner’s name will be drawn on Wednesday, August 15.  The person’s first and last name and a working telephone number needs to be written on the receipt. The owner of the winning receipt will be notified by telephone.

“This is a fun way to keep shopping dollars right here at home,” explains Kerr. “Our local economy’s strength is in our hometown businesses.” “This is a fun way to say thank you to everyone who shops and supports Altus.”
