Chamber Bucks * Shop Local
Chamber Bucks were a popular gift this Holiday season! If you receive a Chamber Bucks check, please redeem it like a normal check, if there is a balance, you may choose to give cash back or store credit.

This is a real check from the Chamber in support of our local businesses. If you do not wish to be on the list of Chamber businesses included with the Chamber Bucks, please contact Heike.

Chamber Bucks are purple in color, have the Chamber logo watermark, are signed by Heike Compe and in the memo say, "Thank you for choosing to Shop Local!"
