HARDIN COUNTY - The Hardin County Chamber & Business Alliance and the Buy Ada First Committee will host a Buy Local First Hardin County Holiday Contest from Nov. 9 to Dec. 12. They are currently seeking businesses to partner in on this initiative to encourage people to shop local this holiday season.

Any Hardin County business may participate. Businesses would need to display the Buy Local First Hardin County sign and donate a gift certificate from the business. Gift certificates must be a minimum of $20. If your business does not offer gift certificates you could give a Chamber Gold gift certificate. All customers who stop by a participating business can register and receive a list of all the businesses in the holiday contest.
