From Staff Reports
The Jonesborough Area Merchants & Service Association will host a Spring Shop Hop on Saturday, April 2, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. throughout downtown Jonesborough.
Customers will be rewarded for shopping local by receiving $10 in JAMSA coins for every $50 spent at participating JAMSA businesses. The total spent is based on the pre-tax amount and can be cumulative across multiple businesses. Participants are encouraged to visit as many businesses as possible.
Participants must pick up a Shop Hop Passport at any participating business on Saturday, April 2. Each business will be required to stamp the card and indicate the pre-tax sales amount for every qualifying purchase.
When participants are finished shopping, they will visit the JAMSA tent beside the Washington County Courthouse to collect their JAMSA coins. The more spent, the more that can be earned towards the next purchase. Several participating merchants will also be promoting special sales and in-store events during the Spring Shop Hop.
JAMSA coins come in increments of $5 and can be used at participating JAMSA businesses like a gift card. They can be used at nearly every store in downtown Jonesborough. For more info, visit the JAMSA Facebook page and see what each shop or restaurant will be offering during the event.
JAMSA is a community of business owners and organizations interested in cooperatively enhancing livelihoods and neighborhood. Members desire to discuss ideas and take action to help strengthen economic viability while maintaining the town’s character.
