For 16 years, the Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber of Commerce has committed to supporting the local business community. As part of that ongoing mission, chamber officials are excited to introduce a new program to promote the Shop Small, Shop Local movement.
The chamber’s executive director, Denise Heidel, has spent several months working on Chamber Cash.
“Chamber Cash is pretty simple,” Heidel said. “It’s a gift certificate program that promotes local shopping and is exclusively accepted by participating Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber Members. Chamber Cash has all the same benefits as any gift certificate people may purchase from an individual business, but it can be spent at any participating Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber of Commerce members’ business.
“We have borrowed the concept from our friends at Downtown Statesville Development Cooperation. I was introduced to their Downtown Dollars program almost a year ago and knew it could be a great program for our chamber, too. Not only will it help promote our participating members, Chamber Cash emphasizes the importance of doing business within our community. As we move into the Christmas shopping season, Chamber Cash is a new and innovative option for those looking for flexible gift giving while supporting local business.”
As Heidel explained, Chamber Cash can only be accepted by chamber members who sign up for the program. However, anyone can purchase or use Chamber Cash. A complete list of participating merchants can be seen on the website Lewisville-Clemmons.com. Heidel anticipates that list to grow as the program grows.
The Chamber Cash program is just one of several new initiatives embraced by the Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber of Commerce.
“We strive to bring added value and creative options to our Chamber members and the community,” Heidel said. “Our staff and our board of directors are always eager to find new ways to engage in our community and encourage others to support our members. Chamber Cash is something we’re super excited about, and we know that it’s a program that will offer years of benefits as we continue to grow and evolve.”
