In December 2020, the City of Navasota and Navasota Economic Development Corporation kicked off a Christmas shopping promotion for small businesses. Between November 27, 2020 and December 14, 2020, both Navasota residents and visitors were able to turn in receipts via email, text message, or by coming to City Hall.
Every $25 spent at any small business in Navasota earned one entry into the drawing for a chance to win a Navasota gift basket. Receipts from multiple stores could also be submitted and added together to meet the $25 entry level.
Throughout this period, receipts were submitted from shoppers supporting 28 local businesses.
