The Love Local Oberlin event is a month-long celebration of the town’s businesses, organized by the Oberlin Business Partnership. All participating businesses are members of the OBP, as stated in a news release. The event includes a Love Local Bingo Card Event that allows community members to engage with Oberlin’s businesses and win prizes.
To participate in the Bingo Card Event, individuals must pick up their card from any participating business partner member. They then embark on a quest to uncover special deals and offers at each distinguished establishment, filling out their bingo card with initials from Oberlin business partner members. Completed cards can be dropped off at either Willow Jewelry or Ginko Gallery to enter weekly drawings for a $25 Oberlin gift certificate or brought to the Oberlin Business Partnership office to receive a free pair of eclipse glasses.
Using the bingo card, individuals can have a unique experience at various locations around town. For example, they can take a tour of the Oberlin Heritage Center, enjoy a Bloody Mary and brunch experience at The Feve, receive a discount at Evie Lou, and so much more. Ultimately, Love Local Oberlin is an opportunity for community members to support local businesses while enjoying all that Oberlin has to offer.
