Here at the Franklin County Chamber, we want to encourage people to shop locally — and to promote the many exceptional businesses who support our efforts through their membership. Chamber Bucks are gift certificates that provide people with options as to where to take their business in the Franklin County region. Bucks are the equivalent of cash for any of the participating businesses listed here.

Chamber Bucks are available for purchase at the Chamber’s Welcome Center, and they are perfect for any occasion. Giving the gift of options is always the right choice — whether it’s for a birthday gift, recognition event, incentive or door prize. Why buy a gift card that limits your relative or co-worker to just one store, when you can open up their options to more than 100 local establishments?

Bucks are available in denominations of $5, $10, $20, $25 and $50, and a brochure which describes the program and lists the businesses who participate is provided with each order. Expiration dates are a thing of the past, so you don’t have to worry about stocking up! That’s right, Chamber Bucks will never expire. And, we’ve recently resized the certificates to make them more wallet-friendly.

Do you still find yourself asking, “How do I use Chamber Bucks?” Using Chamber Bucks is as easy as cash! Simply write in the business name on the line provided on the ‘Bucks’ certificate, and apply it toward your purchase at any of the participating retailers. Businesses will then simply drop by our office at 615 Wilton Rd. in Farmington with the redeemed Bucks, or mail them to us and we’ll cut them a check in return.

By supporting the Chamber Bucks program, you can spend exactly what you want, and keep your investment local. Look for the decal at participating retailers!
