Visit Corvallis invites Benton County and nearby residents to shop where their hearts are, support our local businesses, and earn a chance to win a prize. Just download the Corvallis Savings Pass and get a chance to win $250 in gift cards!

It’s been said that small businesses are the heartbeat of a community and the spirit of a town. In Corvallis, that’s certainly true.

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses have been hit hard and are now navigating through growing their business during these challenging times. To assist, Visit Corvallis is announcing a new campaign urging Benton County and nearby residents to help support local businesses.

On Monday, November 9, Visit Corvallis is kicking off their “Shop Where Your Heart Is” contest to encourage shopping local. Through the end of November, you can download the free Corvallis Savings Pass and get a chance to win a prize. There will be four winners, and each prize is $250 in gift cards from Savings Pass participating businesses.

From now until November 30, 2020, Visit Corvallis will be highlighting businesses in Corvallis, and encourage residents and visitors to support our business community as it weathers these tough times.

The contest’s name, “Shop Where Your Heart Is,” is a reminder to all of us that investing in our community helps makes our community more livable and prosperous in the future.
