SUMMIT, NJ - Shoppers visiting downtown Summit can book their passage on a journey leading to a $500 Summit Gift Card -- or one of ten $100 Gift Cards -- by participating in the 'Shop Summit Passport Program' beginning November 30 through December 8.

Just visit eight different downtown Summit businesses between November 30 and December 7 and have your 'passport' stamped. A minimum of four of the stamps must be from retail shops and no purchase is necessary.

'Passports' must be turned in by 3 p.m. on December 7 to be entered for a chance to win either the $500 Summit Gift Card or one of the 10 runners-up $100 gift cards. Summit Gift Cards are accepted by more than 125 Summit businesses and make great holiday gifts.

The November 30 kick-off to the 'passport' program coincides with 'Small Business Saturday', a nationwide event which -- locally -- offers a meaningful alternative to shopping at the mall or on Route 22 for Black Friday. It is also an ideal way to jump-start one's holiday shopping and support local businesses. Live music will also fill the air throughout downtown. Many downtown businesses will also feature special promotions and sales for the day.
