SHOP FRUITA GIFT CERTIFICATES
Does your Business accept
SHOP FRUITA Gift Certificates?
The SHOP FRUITA Gift Certificate program is an opportunity to promote shoppers to spend their money at our members businesses. Our hope is that you will be able to see a direct link between your chamber membership and money spent in your business.

By choosing to participate, your name has been added to a list that is handed out with each gift certificate. The list of businesses will be available to everyone online at www.fruitachamber.org. All you do is accept the certificate at face value and then redeem the face value (for full reimbursement) of the the certificate at either Chamber office or Grand Valley Bank in Fruita. This is not a money-making proposition for the Chamber, however; this is great way to promote shopper to spend money with our members.
 
Shop Fruita Gift Certificates can be redeemed at the Fruita Area Chamber of Commerce building (432 E. Aspen Street, Fruita, CO 81521) or Grand Valley Bank (Fruita branch).

If you ever have any questions about accepting a certificate, would like to be added to the program, or general questions...please call the Chamber office at (970) 858-3894.
