PAXTON — The Paxton Area Chamber of Commerce has announced a new chamber gift certificate program coinciding with the chamber’s “Live Local, Be Local, Buy Local” campaign.
This program will include an “aggressive effort to increase chamber membership and focus on the promotion of ‘Paxton Bucks’ for holiday gift-giving, employee rewards, customers incentives, etc.,” a letter addressed to local chamber-member businesses reads.
Paxton Bucks must be spent locally at participating chamber-member businesses.
To simplify their use, there will be two denominations of Paxton Bucks: $10 and $25. The gift certificates may be used to buy products or services at any participating chamber-member business, but they may not be redeemed for cash and cannot be deposited in a bank account. The Paxton Bucks must be used in their entirety, with no change given.
A complete listing of participating businesses will appear on the back of each gift certificate.
Businesses were asked to confirm their participation in the program by Nov. 5.
Chamber Bucks were to be made available starting the week of Nov. 12.
