Here at The Chronicle, we're dedicated to local people, families, and businesses that keep our community thriving.

That's why we're incentivizing and rewarding our readers for shopping locally this holiday season.

Visit any of our advertisers between now and Dec. 31, send us your receipt, and you'll be automatically entered to win $250.

The receipts could be for anything: gifts, groceries, dining, repairs — you name it. As long as the company has an ad running in this newspaper between now and the end of December, every purchase counts.

The more receipts you send, the more chances you have to win. We'll draw a new winner each week.

Here's how to play:

Or mail them to us at: Straus News 20 West Ave. Chester NY 10918 Attn: Molly

No purchase necessary. View the complete rules at note that this page will not be available until Thursday, Nov. 1.
