Santa Says to Shop Local This Holiday Season

Ready or not, the holidays are upon us, and you know what that means…shopping!

As always, the Chamber is doing its part to help promote local shopping and boost our economy. One of the main tangible ways we do that is by selling Columbus Bucks.

What are Columbus Bucks? Columbus Bucks work like cash for shoppers and are available in $10 increments. All Chamber members can accept Columbus Bucks and simply deposit them like a check at any local bank.

Columbus Bucks make great Christmas gifts! Stop in to the Chamber during business hours to purchase yours.

Over $60,000 in Columbus Bucks went out the door and into the local business community during the annual Columbus Holiday Giveaway on Small Business Saturday.

These corporate sponsors provided additional “Bonus Bucks” for the Giveaway: Bank of the Valley, Cornerstone Bank, First National Bank, Great Plains State Bank, Great Western Bank, and Pinnacle Bank.

The following businesses helped provide “Bonus Bucks,” as well as a 10% discount: BeYoutiful Boutique & Gifts, Barbara Jean’s, Lavender Thyme Gifts, Treasures Boutique, Tooley Drug & Home Care, Artzy Haven, Grace Jewelry, Market 23, Blossoms Floral & Gifts, Urban Farm Boutique, and Mike Greiner’s National Mattress & Furniture Warehouse.

Other sponsors include Applied Connective Technologies, Fast Mart, Rival Designs, and the Downtown Business Association.
