FLOYDADA—Floyd County residents can earn Chamber bucks just by shopping local during the Floyd County Chamber of Commerce’s Shop Local Fiesta on Thursday, July 16.
The Chamber of Commerce and Chamber Manager Kortney DeBock have planned the “Shop Local Fiesta,” as an incentive to encourage residents to shop local, which in turn helps the small business owners.
“Our local businesses have taken a hit this spring due to the shutdown from COVID-19 restrictions,” Chamber Manger Kortney DeBock said. “We want to have a day that shows how much we appreciate all they do and help them get back on their feet.
“Join us, Thursday, July 16, from 11a.m. -7 p.m. in Floydada as we support those who keep our little town thriving.
We encourage our businesses to run “shop local” specials during this time, and we will advertise all there is to do.
Message the Floydada Chamber of Commerce Facebook page with your specials for the day, and we will advertise on the event page as well as the Chamber page. We look forward to a fun day of local support,” DeBock said.
The Chamber of Commerce will be giving away five Chamber Bucks to every person who spends at least $10 at any business in Floydada. Every $5 spent after that will earn the shopper a ticket into a drawing for 50 Chamber Bucks.
The person who brings in the most receipts will win a GRAND PRIZE of 200 Chamber Bucks. If there is a tie, the tie breaker will be who spent the most money.
The Chamber Buck matches dollar for dollar with money; however, these dollars can only be spent in businesses that are Chamber members.
Receipts can be turned into the Chamber office, 105 South 5th St., between noon to 1 p.m. Friday, July 17. The drawing will take place that evening.
Save the date for July 16 and support local business. We are all in this together, she said.
