LAWTON, OK (KSWO) – Saturday, you will be able to check a few things off that Christmas list as you can support local small businesses, and save some money at the same time.


It's called the Lawton Christmas Crawl and it's an easy way to shop locally.

You can head to Cherry Berry Brew House Coffee Shop on Sheridan to get an 'I shopped local' sticker to participate.

That sticker will help you save a few dollars at 30 small businesses in our area.

UPS owners Yvonne Landmark and her husband are just one of several businesses joining Lawton's Christmas crawl. They've owned their business for 1 year now and decided to participate in helping those see the benefit of shopping local.

They hope shoppers who buy holiday gifts from small businesses will come to their store to ship their packages to family and friends.

Landmark says, "For the entire month of December we are offering a ten percent packing and shipping discount to anyone who is shipping APO. Whether your military or non-military if you're shipping to an APO destination we're offering the ten percent off, that gives everybody a little help shipping out to our serving men and women across the world.”

Kelly Edwards, CEO of Lawton Marketing Group, got the idea for the Christmas crawl on election day.

She says when she saw voters wearing their 'I voted stickers' after coming out of the polls, she thought it would be a neat idea for shoppers to do something similar.

So, she came up with the idea of getting people to wear a sticker proclaiming they are proud to shop locally.

"Shopping local keeps your dollars local here in the community. It supports businesses and family owned businesses her in Lawton and keeping your dollar’s local help a community at large,” said Edwards.

The sticker will get shoppers a discount but, the Christmas spirit will be free.

"A lot of local businesses are offering coffee, hot chocolate, hot wassail, cookies some are offering recharge stations. Others will even have visits with Santa some of them will have gift wrap services available, so just take the time enjoy some Christmas shopping and support local businesses,” said Edwards.

You can pick up one of these stickers starting at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday.
