How ‘Shop Small to Win Big’ Started

Shop Small Win Big was launched in 2020 as a way to support small businesses during the pandemic. Founder of Hello422 Chris Lerch rounded up over 80 businesses to contribute a $100 gift card as a challenge set on the community. The idea was simple, spend $50 or more at a local business and enter to win the pool of gift cards.

Over $80,000 was spent in the 1-week challenge for small businesses in 2020.

Since the first contest, Hello422 evolved into a brand to help small businesses from Pottstown to Phoenixville. This year’s event features over 100 businesses and is continuing to support the local economy.
