With three weeks left in the #DGSOtogo contest, Downtown Greensboro Inc. (DGI) has announced more than $78,000 has been spent locally in the center city’s small businesses.

“What started as a simple idea to spark revenue for our small businesses, has turned into a catalyst for business regrowth downtown,” says Zack Matheny, President and CEO of DGI.

Week nine winners are:

  • $500 GRAND PRIZE: Kermit Myers
  • $500 BUSINESS GRAND PRIZE: Deep Roots Market
  • Downtown Greensboro Merchandise and Gift Cards: Liz Shipman, Lori Hubert, Ryan Smiley, and Benjamin Akins

More than $8,900 was spent during week nine of the #DGSOtogo contest with over 100 entries received.

For 12 weeks, DGI is challenging the Triad to find a local spot in downtown Greensboro and dine/shop in person, order takeout, buy gift cards or shop online. After spending $25 or more in a downtown business, participants can upload a photo of their signed receipt to be entered into a weekly drawing for $500. Additionally, the represented business on the receipt will also receive $500.
