The Souris Chamber of Commerce had another successful season of encouraging their residents and visitors to support local shopping through their 'Red Card Christmas Campaign'.
Souris Chamber member, Jacy Arbuckle, says Chamber members were given the red cards to pass on to their customers upon purchasing an item, and after receiving 4 stamps on their cards, they entered their cards into a draw to win 'Souris Bucks' and MORE!
Arbuckle says they had a great response from participants, with over 3,000 cards printed and handed out to shoppers, both residents of Souris and area, as well as folks visiting their town.
"It's an extra incentive for people who are maybe just stopping in town because they're in Souris for a hockey tournament or other event, and they find out about the Red Card Campaign and then it encourages them to go to a few other places in town to get the four stamps," she explains, "but then for people who live locally here, most of them support local anyways."
Going into 2023, the Souris Chamber is looking strong. "Most businesses say that 2022 was a really good year for them. I think we've got a pretty good group with our Chamber and we're all pretty motivated to get stuff done and come up with new ideas to keep people in town," adds Arbuckle.
