Shop Oro Valley
Whether you are shopping, dining, golfing or re-energizing - make the local decision and Shop Oro Valley.
Your Community Depends on It!
For the Business
The Economic Development Division launched Shop Oro Valley in November 2008. This program is a component of our business retention programs. Through the use of marketing collateral, press releases, ads and town website we created a strong visual campaign promoting the importance of shopping in our community. Our motto is simple, “Shop OV. Your community depends on it!”
Twice a year, we launch special campaigns that feature businesses registered in the Shop OV program. In exchange for a gift card or gift certificate (presented as raffle prizes to shoppers in our community), your business logo is featured in Explorer Newspaper advertisements.
OV Dollars is another successful program designed to prevent “retail leakage” into neighboring communities. OV Dollars is spent exclusively at participating Oro Valley businesses at no cost to the business. System setup is quick and is compatible with existing POS systems where major credit cards are accepted. Throughout the year, promotions are provided to shoppers encouraging the use of OV Dollars in the community. Since the December 2011 launch of this program over $246,000 of OV Dollars have been spent.
Thank you to Oro Valley businesses and program partners, Explorer Newspaper and Greater Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce. Your support and participation make these programs possible.
