The Monona Chamber’s annual Holiday Shop Hop runs Saturday to Saturday again this year; however, it’s been expanded from one to three full weeks, from Dec. 3-24. This gives shoppers extra time, at their own pace, to select the places they will patronize to fill up their punch cards.  

The Monona Chamber sponsors the event to promote local shopping, to keep cash registers ringing, dollars circulating around town, and sales tax growing for an added boost to merchants and the local economy.

Punch cards may be picked up at any of the following locations during their business hours:  Monona Chamber, Quillin’s, FreedomBank, Monona Pharmacy, MJ’s Bar & Grill, R Place Sports Bar & Grille, Suhdron Fabrics, Fisk Farm & Home, Birdnow Chevrolet and any other location specified at

During the period, each shopper is asked to patronize at least three chamber merchants around town, at which time merchants will validate each purchase on the shopper’s punch card (only one card allowed per shopper). Shoppers may become eligible to win one of four drawings totaling over $1,000 in gifts and prizes, all generously donated by Monona Chamber merchants. Follow Monona Chamber’s Facebook page for contest updates, prizes and photos. Please post your tasteful Monona Holiday Shop Hop selfies on the Facebook page using #MononaIowaHolidayShopHop, to share your fun memories with the community. 

Your eligible punch card, completed with name and phone number, may be dropped off at the chamber’s downtown office over business hours, Monday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., or during after-hours utilizing the chamber’s front door mail slot. The drop-off deadline is by 11:59 p.m. on Christmas Eve. The four lucky winners will be picked on Wednesday, Dec. 28.
