Shop Local Bingo
While businesses were hit hard by COVID-19, those in Knox County were especially devastated because it was one of the first counties to have a positive case. Everything shut down for months. We launched a BINGO game to promote shopping locally. We advertised it in print and online. Readers could get a bingo by purchased $15 or more at local retailers, and they did. It became a fun competition and brought business to those needed the financial support. We had about 300 people playing in Knox County.
