Shop local. You have heard the phrase. De Smet’s Chamber of Commerce is kicking off an idea that is sure to help the local merchants and save money for the consumers in the area.
The Chamber is distributing De Smet Chamber of Commerce Holiday Booklets. The booklets will be mailed to all De Smet P. O. Boxholders. They will also be available at all the businesses participating on Thurs., Nov. 4.
Each booklet features thirty different coupons or offers. When you visit a local merchant, show them the booklet, the coupon you would like to use, and they will stamp or sign the square. Get ten or more stamps, turn it in at Ward’s Store and Bakery by Dec. 24 at the latest, and each booklet will be entered into a drawing. Five lucky shoppers will receive $100 in De Smet Chamber bucks that can be used in De Smet local businesses. You need not be present to win.
The coupon booklets are an idea the chamber came up with to help increase sales for local merchants and save the consumers a little cash. No more long commutes to Sioux Falls and dealing with the long lines, limited stock and crowded stores. Just “pop” into one or all of the participating stores in De Smet and knock out that Christmas list and be done in a fraction of the time it would take you to travel to and from Sioux Falls. Plus, you are helping local merchants and keeping your money here, helping the local economy.
The local merchants participating in the holiday booklet offers are O’Keefe’s, Ward’s Store and Bakery, Fields Fish and Game, DeSigns Salon, Cowboy Country Store, Grumpy’s, Prairie Town Gifts, De Smet Flowers and Gifts, The Loftus Store, De Smet Mercantile and Coffeehouse, Palmlund Automotive. Trustworthy Hardware Store, the Laura Ingalls Wilder Memorial Society, Bernie’s Barber Shop and Dakota Creation and Design. Coupons will be available at all participating merchants, Nov. 4.
The following businesses sponsored the holiday booklets: Kingsbury Journal, Horizon Health Care, Avera, DeSCo, Lyle Signs, De Smet Farm Mutual Insurance Company of South Dakota, Prairie Ag Partners and Legend Seeds.
On Thursday, grab your booklet, shop local using your coupons or special offers, get the stamps, enter the drawing, and you could win an additional $100 in De Smet Chamber Bucks. No long trips, lots of time saved, and the money helps the local economy.
