18 Reasons to “Travel” Local This Winter


Chandler, Ariz. – Starting on Nov. 26, Small Business Saturday, and continuing throughout the winter months is a new way to enjoy Downtown Chandler and cross off those places you’ve been meaning to try; The Downtown Chandler Winter Passport. This booklet of promotions and coupons is redeemable at the participating merchants, and if the traveler completes all the required destinations, they can turn their passport in for a chance to win a Downtown Chandler staycation.


Eighteen Downtown Chandler merchants have an offering in the booklet, making it easy to find something that everyone will love. Offerings range from buy-one-get-one half off, percentages off a purchase and free items with a certain dollar purchase. The passport offers a perfect opportunity to save while unwinding at a romantic date before the in-laws arrive, bringing the whole family out for a breakfast or simply Christmas shopping.


Passports will be available at various Downtown Chandler merchants, the City Hall Visitor’s Area, the monthly Third Friday Art Walks and Thursdays from 3-7 p.m. at the Chandler Farmers Markets (see the Downtown Chandler booth).


After obtaining the passport, it's time to start saving and enjoying yourself at Downtown Chandler hotspots. Simply take the booklet into the participating merchant and let them know you’d like to use their coupon. An employee at the establishment will mark the offer as redeemed by stamping the corresponding page in the passport. From there on out, you can take the booklet to other locations and “travel” the downtown.


One lucky winner will be chosen to win a staycation for two. The staycation includes:

  • One night stay at the Crowne Plaza San Marcos Resort

  • 2 VIP tickets to a Downtown Chandler festival (Beer & BBQ or Cajun Fest)

  • $50 gift card to La Bocca / Modern Margarita

  • $15 gift card to Ice Cream Sammies

  • $20 gift card to the Downtown Chandler Cafe & Bakery

  • Souvenirs from Sibley's West


For those interested in entering for a chance to win the Downtown Chandler staycation, attention must be paid to the pages that have an ostrich on the bottom right-hand side. All offers with the ostrich must be stamped, and therefore marked as redeemed, to be eligible for entering the contest. All offers are redeemable Nov. 26 to Feb. 28. Completed passports must be turned in by Mar. 1 at Peixoto Coffee. One winner will be chosen. Winner will be announced on Mar. 6.


Coupons and offerings are valid Nov. 26 - Feb. 28. See downtownchandler.org or the Facebook event listing for more information.
