Springfield Holiday Local Loyalty program a success

Rebecca Durant receives a prize from staff at The Springfield Food Co-Op, one of many businesses that participated in a new shop-in-Springfield incentive program organized for the holiday shopping season.

The Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce would like to thank the 33 businesses that participated in the first annual Springfield Holiday Local Loyalty Program. The concept was to distribute stamp cards 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 33 raffles being offered by the merchants.

This being the first year we attempted the program, we weren’t sure how many cards we were going to need, and we were amazed to discover that we distributed over 7,300 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 $244,100. And that’s not counting all the partially completed cards that folks also had started. We couldn’t be more excited about how great things went this first time around, and we certainly hope the program gave our wonderful businesses a bit of a boost.
