More than $7,270 was spent in center city small businesses as part of week seven of the Downtown Greensboro, Inc.’s (DGI) #DGSOtogo contest. To date, more than $63,000 has been spent locally during the 12-week campaign.

Week seven winners are:

  • $500 GRAND PRIZE: Erica Jones
  • $500 BUSINESS GRAND PRIZE: Luxe Fragrance Bar
  • Downtown Greensboro Merchandise and Gift Cards: Janis Antonek, Laura Gonzalez, Dan Pauley, and Monesha Towns

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.
