Shop Local contest standings

The Two Harbors Chamber of Commerce Shop Local contest is well under way. Local kids earn points when family members and friends make purchases at local retailers and take their receipts to True Value Hardware on First Ave. Kids earn a point for every dollar spent, with a 1000 point per day maximum. The contest ends Dec. 23, so it’s not too late to donate points to a child on the list. Here’s an update on the point leaders:
