South East Chicago Commission’s annual Southside Shop Local initiative is designed to uplift local businesses and spotlight small businesses in Southeast lakefront Chicago neighborhoods. This year more than 60 businesses are participating in the initiative.

The month long campaign begins Monday, November 8th through Monday, December 6, 2021 to kick off the holiday shopping season.

Shoppers are encouraged to save and submit receipts from in-store and online purchases above $15.00 for a chance to win the Grand Prize $500 Shopping Spree with local small businesses. All entries must be submitted by 12:00 pm Noon, December 7, 2021.
