We certainly appreciate everyone’s efforts to keep our community safe, and healthy, during this unprecedented time. Now, as businesses begin to re-open, there is a strong need to encourage our community to support local, by shopping local. We want to push out the message started a few months ago…”Buy Close By”!
The Downtown Ingersoll BIA is excited to announce the launch of the BIA Bucks Program. Area residents will be able to purchase BIA Bucks at a reduced rate…for every Downtown Ingersoll BIA Buck purchased, you will experience a savings of 20%!!
– A $5 BIA Buck will cost $4
– A $10 BIA Buck will cost $8
– A $25 BIA Buck will cost $20
The BIA is committing up to $10,000 to this program as just one way we are working towards reinvigorating our local economy.
– BIA Bucks will be printed in $5, $10 and $25 denominations.
– The maximum redeemable amount would be $200 worth of BIA Bucks for any one sale.
– There is no change expected to be given on a purchase using BIA Bucks, and the BIA bucks hold no cash value.
– Participating businesses will accept the BIA Bucks at face value
– The BIA Bucks cannot be redeemed for alcohol, tobacco, or lottery tickets. Participating business can place other restrictions on the BIA Bucks if they so wish, for example, gift cards and prescription medications would also be exempted.
– Participating merchants will place a sticker in their storefront window notifying you that they are accepting BIA Bucks at their business location
