City encourages residents to “Shop Surprise, Shape Surprise”


Shop SurpriseThe City of Surprise has launched a new “Shop Surprise, Shape Surprise” campaign to show how shopping locally helps to shape the community.

Local sales tax makes up nearly 40 percent of the city’s General Fund revenues. That means by keeping sales tax dollars at home, residents are helping to pay for city services that they count on such as police, fire, park operations and street repair.

To spread the word about the importance of shopping locally, the city has created a “Shop Surprise, Shape Surprise” website that includes a Public Service Announcement (PSA) at The PSA will also be played on the city’s Surprise 11 TV station.
