Chamber Bucks Provide Big Boost to Local Businesses
To date, in 2013, more than $48,000 in Rhinelander Chamber Bucks have been purchased and spent at local Rhinelander Chamber Member businesses. Chamber Bucks are generic gift checks that can be purchased in any denomination at the Rhinelander Chamber of Commerce. In turn those gift checks can be used just like a check at any Rhinelander Chamber Member business. All dollars spent on Chamber Bucks stay in the local Rhinelander community supporting our local businesses.
“Chamber Bucks are a great benefit and tool that we can offer here at the Rhinelander Chamber to encourage and help promote shopping locally and supporting local Rhinelander businesses. It is so encouraging to see this program continue to grow and to know that since January 1, 2013 almost $50,000 was cycled through our local economy through this program,” Chamber Executive Director Lara Reed said. “Chamber Bucks also make great holiday gift ideas for employees, family or friends as they can be used at more than 360 local businesses. That means recipients have an option on where to cash them in.”
In order to accept Chamber Bucks businesses need to be a Member of the Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce.
