Christmas is this Sunday and while people are scrambling to find the last minute gift, the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce has a gift that could work for anyone with any interests in the area. Patty Hornbuckle, CEO of the Taylorville Chamber said these gift certificates can be used at more than 100 businesses in Taylorville including, car detailing, restaurants, hotels, and much more. Hornbuckle said the goal of using the gift certificates is so the money used for Christmas stays local.
Hornbuckle said the gift certificates work in a way where the chamber acts as a pass through where the businesses will redeem the gift certificate and if there's money left over, the people using the certificate will receive cash back.
