The Seneca Area Chamber/SDI believes it is important to shop local and support businesses within Seneca. With this in mind, we’re proud to offer Chamber/SDI Gift Certificates to promote shopping local.
Why Does Buying Local Benefit You?
- More money is put into our local economy.
- Jobs are created and saved.
- Local businesses support community activities.
- Better customer service and convenience.
- Tax dollars fund our local fire, police, and parks departments.
Each time you make a local purchase, you support local jobs. During times like these, spending those dollars at home makes an even greater impact on our local economy.
Sales tax that is generated by local purchases goes to fund important city departments such as fire, police, parks, library, and senior services. Businesses also support and sponsor local events and activities that make Seneca a great place to live.
We want to encourage local shoppers to look here first before making a trip out of town. Shoppers will often save time and money by shopping locally instead of taking a long trip.
The Seneca Area Chamber/SDI gift certificate program enables anyone to purchase gift certificates which are accepted at all 117 Seneca Area Chamber/SDI member locations. Gift certificates can be purchased at any of the four banks in Seneca, and be given as general gifts, as special gifts, as holiday gifts, as part of an employee bonus program, even as awards! There is no additional cost above the face value dollar amount of the certificates.
The program is designed to promote Chamber/SDI member businesses and encourage people to patronize them. This incredibly successful program sold nearly $58,000 last year.
That’s $58,000 that stayed in our community and supported local business just last year!
