Shop Small tote bags will be available while supplies last, and shoppers can pick up a Downtown Farmington Passport at participating businesses to collect stamps and enter to win a Downtown Farmington swag bag.

Oakland County’s Shop Small campaign includes the chance to win thousands of dollars in cash by supporting small businesses. To enter the #ShopTextWin contest, save your receipt when you shop at an Oakland County small business on November 30, then text ShopTextWin to 41411 by December 3.
