The program to encourage consumption in local commerce «Eu Compro em Grândola», promoted by the municipality in partnership with the Association of Commerce, Industry, Services and Tourism of the District of Setúbal (ACISTDS), moved around 290 thousand euros during the festive season.
The initiative took place from December 1st to January 6th, with more than 50 stores in the municipality joining.
"Over this period, more than 18,700 coupons (one coupon corresponds to 15 euros of purchases) were delivered, totaling a purchase volume of around 290 thousand euros," said the municipality, in a statement.
The municipality of Grândola, therefore, makes a “very positive” assessment of the program, which also had a social and environmental responsibility aspect, involving the USG and the Solidary Living Program, the Grândola Schools Group (1st cycle students and pre-school education) and Cercigrândola by making the Christmas stars that decorated the Christmas pines made available to participating establishments and which will be planted by Cercigrândola users.
In addition to the prizes awarded to consumers in the municipality, the program also provided for the attribution of 3% of the value of each coupon up to the maximum limit of 5,000 euros to Cercigrandola.
The success of the initiative will thus allow the institution to allocate the maximum amount regulated to this institution to help build the lounge.
The winners of the draw were announced on January 28th and will receive prizes totaling 2 thousand euros in shopping vouchers.
Remember, the “Eu Compro em Grândola” program started in the middle of last year, revealing itself as “an important municipal measure to support consumers and traditional trade” and “contributing to minimize the negative impacts of the pandemic and to boost the local economy ”.
The Alentejo autarchy assured that its "continuity is guaranteed" in 2021.
