Start punching those cards for Chamber Bucks prizes
By Jan Schultz
The Imperial Republican
Check inside this week’s issue of The Imperial Republican for the punch card that is a big part of the Chamber of Commerce and city of Imperial’s 2013 holiday season’s Shop Imperial campaign.
Thirty-six local businesses are participating in the promotion this year, which will award local shoppers a combined $1,000 in Chamber Bucks in two December drawings.
More businesses are participating this year, up from 30 businesses in last year’s promotion.
In order to get in on those drawings for $250, $150 and $100 each time, people are encouraged to spend their shopping dollars at home.
Each card has a total value of $200 in increments of $10, $50 and $100. Every time people shop at one of the 36 participating businesses and spend between $10 and $100, their card will be punched.
Once the card is filled with $200 in punches, shoppers are to fill out their name, address and phone number and take the card to Pinnacle Bank, Fine Things Jewelry & Gifts or the city of Imperial office.
More punch cards are available at the businesses taking part. Those businesses taking part in the punch card campaign will have an identifying flyer on their window or door.
All cards turned in by the first drawing at the Dec. 5 Christmas Festival celebration will be eligible for the three Chamber Bucks awards ($250, $150 or $100) that night.
Those not chosen that night and other cards received after Dec. 5 will be in contention for the Dec. 19 drawing.
Winners at each drawing do not have to be present, said Chamber President Jana Pribbeno.
This year’s Shop at Home campaign theme is “Celebrate the Charm of Shopping Imperial.”
