The Chamber’s “Meet Weyburn” campaign continues throughout the fall season, and for the month of October the goal of the Chamber Bucks promotion is to get individuals out making purchases at Chamber member businesses.
After a customer has made a purchase remind them to come down to the Chamber office (11 Third Street) with their receipt.
The Chamber will confirm that the receipt is from a Chamber member and the date is valid between October 1-31. The receipt will be initialed and the customer can then enter their name into the draw.
The grand prize of $1,000 Chamber Bucks will be drawn for one lucky winner on Monday, Nov. 15.
The winner can use the Chamber Bucks at any participating member who will accept the Chamber Bucks. If a business receives any Chamber Bucks, they can bring them back to the Chamber office to exchange the value in Canadian money.
The Chamber is still accepting businesses that would like to sign up and be part of this promotion. Contact the office to be added to the list of participants. This is a FREE promotion. Business owners as individuals are also eligible to be entered.
