Cities across Green Country are encouraging their citizens to shop local, as a chance to help businesses in their community that have been impacted by the pandemic.

The Rose District in Broken Arrow is just one place where locals are busy shopping for the holidays.

Many stores are part of the Buy BA campaign to get residents to shop local.

The Succulent Shop in BA opened in June, owner Cassidy Meredith says they've seen incredible support from the community.

Meredith tells us, “the candles, the jewelry is all made by another small business owner so that’s our way of being able to give back to other small businesses and hopefully that will bring people in to support us.”

Bixby store owner, Kelly Corey, tells us she's seen a lot of community support after closing her store for two months in the spring.

Corey, the owner of Twisted Soul Sisters, says “definitely a great time for retail therapy for a lot of ladies to come out. So we really put smiles on people’s faces which was really awesome.”

In BA and Bixby, shoppers can get tickets with purchases from local stores, both cities have a raffle with a grand prize of ten thousand dollars.

Bixby residents have until December 10th to collect their raffle tickets and Broken Arrow residents have until December 15th.

The drawing for Bixby is December 11th and the drawing for Broken Arrow is December 17th.
