 Community invited to celebrate the Second Annual Buy El Paso Day

Community invited to celebrate the Second Annual Buy El Paso Day

Buy El Paso Day is Saturday, December 4, but the festivities are happening all week long.

Organizers share that Buy El Paso Day is the perfect opportunity to support your favorite local small businesses and discover new local small businesses, all while giving back and having fun.

With the holidays right around the corner, it’s the perfect season to see what locally sourced gifts you can give this year! Just under 100 local businesses across El Paso County are opening their doors for Buy El Paso Day shoppers.

A variety of businesses from across the city and county will hand out stickers to the first fifty Buy El Paso Day shoppers in their store.

“With the difficulties our community has faced over the last two years in mind, Buy El Paso Day is a celebration of each other and of supporting our community members,” said Marybeth Stevens, president of Better Business Bureau Paso del Norte. “Last year, during the height of the pandemic, El Pasoans came out to support local businesses like never before; let’s do it again this year!”

From Sunday, November 28 through Saturday, December 4, Buy El Paso Day will encourage shoppers to buy from local small businesses. Be on the lookout for piñatas at select stores, containing a QR code to enter a raffle. The Buy El Paso Day piñatas will be placed in different local businesses each day, encouraging people to visit stores all across the city and county in search of cool gifts and raffle prizes.

Community members who participate should follow Buy El Paso on social media to see hints about the location of the piñatas for that day. The list of the piñatas’ locations for each day will be updated daily to BuyEP.org.

Once a piñata is found, the shopper must scan the QR code and take a photo of the piñata, tagging Buy El Paso, to be entered in the raffle for a chance to win the third-place, second-place or grand prize. Buy El Paso will announce the raffle winners on its social media pages.

Organizers say each day, the piñatas will be placed in new locations, with new prizes available! So, be sure to participate every day to increase chances of winning.

The prizes range in value and size and will serve as rewards for those choosing to support their local businesses.
