Downtown Blacksburg businesses offering rewards for receipts

BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ) -- Doing any shopping in downtown Blacksburg? You might want to save your receipts!

Downtown Blacksburg, Inc., or D.B.I., is running a "Rewards for Receipts" promotion through the end of March.

The premise is simple: bring receipts from any downtown business to another participating merchant to receive a discount.

The goal is to drum up support for local merchants while business isn't as busy.

""This is typically a slow time of year due to weather and we're past Christmas, so it's a good excuse to come down, check out the businesses and get some rewards for shopping but also support your local merchants at the same time," said Laureen Blakemore, the director of D.B.I.
