With local sales tax being one of the major revenue sources for Amarillo, The Buy The Way Keep It Local Campaign is kicking off the 2nd Lovin’ Local Shopping Day.
On Saturday, October 12th, Amarillo Citizens are encouraged to shop at local businesses to help keep that sales tax here in our city.
Amarillo Councilwoman Elaine Hays gives us the sales tax numbers.

Amarillo shoppers can win an array of prizes by taking photos of their local shopping experiences and posting to social media by using the hashtag #LovinLocal.
Shoppers will be entered into a drawing for several prizes, including a grand prize “staycation” consisting of a two-night stay for two at Embassy Suites, breakfast for two at Scratch Made Bakery, a Jeep tour in Palo Duro Canyon and $50 gift cards to Esquire Jazz Club and Six Car Pub & Brewery.
