The “One Stop Shop” will include businesses that don’t have a traditional storefront, as well as those with “brick and mortar” stores.

Scavenger Hunt participants also can bring their cards to the One Stop Shop to enter a drawing for prizes.

All “One Stop Shop” attendees will receive an entry for the drawing. Scavenger Hunt participants will receive additional entries based on the number of businesses they successfully found.
