Shopping Cape

Keep your dollars in Delaware’s Cape Region
The Cape Gazette, in partnership with presenting sponsor County Bank, is pleased to announce the formation of Shopping Cape. This holiday shopping extravaganza features local businesses and retailers encouraging everyone to shop with independently-owned businesses this holiday season.

According to the 2018 Small Business Economic Impact Study conducted by Econsult Solutions, Inc. (ESI) on behalf of American Express, 67¢ of every dollar spent at a small business stays in the local community.

Of the 67¢, 44¢ goes to the small business owner and employee wages and benefits while the other 23¢ gets reinvested in other local businesses. Shopping local will not only provide your loved ones with gifts that are one of a kind, it also strengthens the economic fabric of your community.

In addition to the joy received while shopping with small businesses in the Cape Region, local shoppers will have the opportunity to win thousands of dollars worth of local gift cards. Just send any receipt from one of our participating locations to and you will be entered for a chance to win:

GRAND PRIZE – $500 in local gift cards.

SECOND PLACE – $250 in local gift cards

THIRD PLACE – $150 in local gift cards

Plus, there will be daily drawings for your chance to win $50 gift cards. Daily winning receipts will be placed back in the pool for the grand prize drawing. Individuals may enter as many new receipts as possible, so the more you shop small, the greater your chance at winning!
