The City Council created a campaign to support local commerce in Huercal-Overa prior to Father's Day. It was called 'For Dad and Mom, Buy at Local Commerce'. This campaign helped promote shopping for this and the next Mother's Day.
This campaign will last until Mother's Day, May 1. It began March 16th. "From the City Council together with the merchants in our municipality, we designed a special campaign to promote purchases on these special days. The purpose of this campaign is to encourage purchases on this date with the goal of gift-buying for Dad and Mom in Huercal-Overa. This is how merchants joined the campaign. It has been very successful with 50 establishments.
The raffle prize of 1000 Euros to be spent in participating shops in one day is the most attractive. This is something that neighbors can take advantage of to purchase in the Local Shop and give it to Dad or Mom.
The campaign will offer a chance to win 1,000 euros if you shop in at least 5 participating shops in the 4 shopping areas. You can also get three laptops from the Almeria Chamber of Commerce.
