Luncheon held to "Shop Paragould First"

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT)-  Members of the Paragould Chamber of Commerce came together to gear up for the holiday shopping season.

Members came to the "Shop Paragould First" luncheon at the Red Goose Restaurant Thursday.  Businesses were able to sign up to take a chamber box to put in their establishment.  Customers can then register to win $1,000 in "Chamber Bucks".

Chamber members say the boxes help the local economy as well as increase foot traffic to Paragould businesses.

About 80 establishments signed up for boxes and will place them in their business.
