(FLINT, Mich. – Nov. 29, 2021) With the holiday shopping season underway, Consumers Energy and the Flint & Genesee Chamber are partnering once again on the “Our Town” Gift Card Match Program. Through the promotion, shoppers can double their gift card purchases at 28 area restaurants and food-based businesses for a limited time.
“We’re excited to bring back this program during such a popular time of year for consumer spending,” said Andy Younger, executive director of the Flint & Genesee Chamber, a division of Flint & Genesee Group. “This is a great way for shoppers to stretch their dollars while also supporting the outstanding locally owned businesses in our area during the holiday season.”
This is the third time the Chamber has participated in the “Our Town” initiative, which will operate the same as before. A customer who buys a $10 gift card or gift certificate at a participating business will receive a second $10 gift card at no cost to them. The maximum amount eligible to be doubled for one customer is $50.
The program is supported by a $30,000 donation from Consumers Energy, which is partnering with other chambers and downtown organizations to offer similar initiatives throughout the state.
“Consumers Energy is excited to again support Michigan’s small businesses and communities we serve this holiday season,” said Lauren Youngdahl Snyder, Consumers Energy’s vice president of customer experience. “‘Our Town’ made an impact across Michigan last year, and we look forward to seeing the program’s dollars and shoppers give a boost to shops and restaurants in their hometowns.”
The Flint & Genesee promotion begins Nov. 29 and will run at each location until the donated funds are depleted. Unless noted otherwise, community members can take advantage of the program by visiting one of the following Chamber member locations and asking to purchase a gift card through the Our Town program.
