Ottertail businesses start new promotion

The Ottertail Business and Community Association has introduced a new program designed to encourage area residents and tourists to explore all the city has to offer. 

The Ottertail Passport is a free booklet filled with a variety of promotions and savings from participating Ottertail businesses. 

After taking advantage of all the promotions offered in the passport, participants are entered for a chance to win $250 in Otter Bucks at the annual Otter Dazzle holiday event.

Sponsored by participating members of the Ottertail Business and Community Association, the Ottertail Passport was introduced on August 1.

Customers may pick up the passports at any participating businesses, indicated by the Ottertail Passport drop box displayed in a prominent location.
