The Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce would like to thank the nineteen businesses that participated in Springfield's 3rd Annual Local Loyalty Program!
Special thanks also to our program sponsors: The Copper Fox, Cota Oil, HB Energy Solutions, Lawrence and Wheeler, Inc., Rewind 106.5FM/1480AM WCFR, and Amcomm Wireless - Claremont, NH for helping us to make the whole thing possible.
The concept was to distribute stamp cards with $100 values, so that shoppers could receive stamps in exchange for dollars spent at any of the participating businesses. Each time a shopper filled a card, they had the opportunity to enter it in any of the nineteen raffles being offered by the merchants. This year, despite the challenging circumstances of the pandemic, we were honored to distribute nearly 7,400 blank stamp cards to the participating businesses! Each merchant collected completed stamp cards for their raffles, and in the end, we tallied up all the completed cards valued at more than $112,200! And that’s not counting all the partially completed cards that folks also had started. We couldn’t be more thrilled about how well things went this year, even in tough times, and we certainly hope the program gave our wonderful businesses a bit of a boost! We received lots of positive feedback from the participating businesses as we
ll as the folks doing the shopping – it was fun to see everyone getting excited. The program was a great way to boost morale and generate comradery and community pride. We were so grateful to be able to bring this fun program to the Springfield area again this winter, and we were blown away by the enthusiasm of local shoppers – thank you to everyone who got involved and assisted us in the collective endeavor to keep dollars local this past holiday season!
