New ‘Our Town’ Program Gives Matching Genesee County Gift Cards
It's all about loving where you live. Our town has so much to offer and that's exactly what the new program from the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce has in mind.
The new "Our Town Gift Card Match Program" is offering double the value of gift cards purchased at their locations for a limited time. The Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce has teamed up with 20+ local food centered businesses for the new program made possible by a $25,000 donation from Consumers Energy.
“We’re hoping to give our local restaurant industry a shot in the arm by incentivizing community members to patronize these businesses during what has been a very difficult time,” said Kristina Johnston, COO at the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce in a press release. “What’s great about the Our Town program is that it puts additional dollars in the hands of some of our local food-based businesses, while also allowing consumers to stretch their dining budgets in Genesee County.”
So here's how it works. Customers who purchases a $10 gift card at a participating business will receive a second $10 gift card at no cost to them. The maximum amount eligible to be doubled for one customer is $100.
The offer started this week and will run until the donated funds are depleted. You can support the new program by visiting one of the following Chamber member locations and asking to purchase one of the gift cards through the Our Town program.
