Sending a simple text may help you win an I-pad. The Greater Ishpeming-Negaunee Area Chamber of Commerce has partnered with businesses to offer promotional deals.
Residents are encouraged to text "gincc" to "313131" to receive deals from participating members. Every "texter" is automatically entered to win an I-pad. The Verizon Wireless store in Negaunee is also providing I-pad accessories.
"It's a nice way to connect our business owners, our businesses, to residents and to the community," said Chamber Director, Elizabeth Peterson.
The purpose of the I-pad drawing is to promote shopping locally in the U.P.
