A local business owner with a passion for small businesses started a site a year and a half ago called ShopLocalBuyLocal.com. If you have not heard of ShopLocalBuyLocal, it is a social networking site that promotes Main Street America in Gettysburg and surrounding towns! Visit their website here and watch a video of creator, Jeremy Schaffner explaining this great concept of supporting local business.
The newest addition to this movement is a reward program that offers discounts and prizes when you support participating businesses.
The new “green cards” give shoppers a 10% discount on businesses listed on the card. Once 8 out of the 10 businesses have been stamped, it can be mailed in for a chance to win other prizes.
According to a recent article in the Evening Sun, “If the promotion is successful, Schaffner said he hopes to do two or three cards a year, each featuring a new set of businesses.”
The cards can be picked up at any of the following businesses: Scott & Co. Fine Jewelers, Massage of Trichotomy, Earl’s Inn, Scozzaro’s Old Mill Inn, Handcrafted For You, Tail Chasers Grooming, Gettysburg Day Spa, Nature’s Pet Place, Sacred Lotus Yoga Studio and The Pottery Box & Gift Shop.
When eight of the 10 businesses have been stamped, mail the card to P.O. Box 3653, Gettysburg, Pa., 17325, for a chance at a $10 gift certificate.
