Small Shops Big Hearts makes holiday shopping a local affair with Win Big!

The campaign incentivizes Portlanders to buy gifts at small businesses with the chance to win raffle prizes.

A storefront for Pacific Holiday in Portland shows a poster for Win Big.

Keep an eye out for Win Big! posters in storefronts.

This year’s Win Big! holiday shopping campaign has a prize bag that puts Santa to shame, including air travel, vacation stays, Trail Blazers and Thorns tickets, gift cards, and more.

What do you have to do for a chance at this? Just something everybody can get behind — supporting local small businesses now through Dec. 10. Here’s how it works:

  • First, download the Win Big Shop Small app, either on Apple or Google Play.
  • Then browse the Small Shops Big Hearts directory or pick up a guide at participating small businesses to plan your retail route.
  • Every purchase means three entries into the prize raffle; those double after three purchases, triple after six, and quadruple after nine.
  • Winners will be announced the week following the conclusion of the event.
