Allegan Dollars are a great way to increase the power of your gift-giving dollars this holiday season. Available for purchase at the Allegan Area Chamber of Commerce, and accepted at most retailers and restaurants in the Allegan, Allegan Dollars keep your money in our community. Last year’s holiday season saw Allegan Dollars purchased by out-of-town grandparents for gifts to their Allegan family members, used as tokens of appreciation to mail-carriers and refuse collectors, and awarded as holiday bonuses and service awards for employees.
Money spent at local, independent retailers returns twice the economic benefit to the local economy than money spent at national chains. Money spent locally increases the tax base, creates jobs, and increases demands for other local services, such as accountants, printers, and attorneys. Local business owners provide more personalized service, are more responsive to regional demands for products offered, and are more likely to give back to their community.
This holiday season, give the gift of Allegan Dollars, and keep more of your dollars in Allegan.
