First Down Friday this week in Choctaw County

By Choctaw County Chamber of Commerce


It’s time for First Down Friday in October! Friday, October 4, will be First Down Friday in Choctaw County. Local citizens are being asked to spend $10 at two or more businesses in the county.

For every $10 a customer spends at a participating local Chamber business on First Down Friday they will be eligible to enter a raffle. A customer will need to write their name and phone number on the back of their receipt. A drawing will be held Monday morning after all the receipts are collected.

The raffle prize for the First Down Friday on October 4 will be a tailgate gift basket valued at $50. The winner will receive a custom tailgate gift basket full of items from their favorite local team including team jewelry from Tonya Barlow Jewelry.

You are being asked to support your local businesses on First Down Friday the same way you support your local teams. As you head to the football field, stop by your favorite store to see what’s new or make plans to eat at your favorite restaurant.
