It’s time for the holidays, and now, more than ever, our local businesses need your economic support. You can help support them through the Bainbridge Buck Program, a program created to keep money here locally by the Bainbridge-Decatur County Chamber of Commerce.

For several years now, the Bainbridge-Decatur County Chamber of Commerce has been offering and promoting Bainbridge Bucks/“Gift Certificates” to our members and the community during the holidays. Bainbridge Bucks are just like cash, but are accepted by local participating businesses. They can be purchased at the Chamber, in $15, $20, $25 and $50 dollar denominations and are just like a gift certificate. The past several years this program has returned almost $30,000 annually back to our local community.

Many employers use this program during the holidays for employee bonuses, but Bainbridge Bucks make a great present anytime even if you just want to say “thank you” for a job well done. A gift certificate is good to only one business, but recipients of Bainbridge Bucks can use them for everything from paying an electric bill, to shopping, buying gas, going out for dinner and so much more.

Bainbridge Bucks are the perfect gift and you will feel good knowing you’re helping our local businesses be successful. Just look for the Bainbridge Bucks logo. Participating businesses will have a “Bainbridge Buck” logo displayed in their store.

Please support our community by shopping locally. Call Kim Walden at (229) 246-4774 for more information.
