Tracking bargains for Lakewood shoppers is what ShopLakewood.org is all about.
ShopLakewood.org is a fun Facebook page offering money-saving coupons, promotions, grand-opening announcements about new businesses and prize-winning contests.
Recent ShopLakewood.org postings have included Buy One, Get One lunches, promotion of an event at Cal Bowl, and a 40% off coupon for Michaels. For fans of the page, ShopLakewood holds several contests throughout the year to win prizes such as Lakewood insignia items and gift cards to local businesses.
While ShopLakewood.org is a Facebook page, it's not necessary to join Facebook to view it. Facebook members are urged to "like" the page so they can participate in special contests.
ShopLakewood reminds the community that purchases made locally mean tax dollars stay in Lakewood for park programs, law enforcement services, beautiful trees, well-maintained streets and more. Run by the Greater Lakewood Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with the City of Lakewood, the program highlights both large chains and local mom-and-pop shops and professional services.
