The Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce wants residents to keep their holiday dollars in the community this season, and they have a program to help people keep their money in town. The Chamber is selling gift certificates that are good at many local businesses.
Patti Hornbuckle is the President and CEO of the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce. She says 25 more dollars of every $100 spent stays in the community when you go to a local business versus a national chain.
Hornbuckle says the certificates can be personalized or generic, and they are working with local groups looking for holiday gifts.
Hornbuckle says certificates can be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce office on the second floor of the U.S. Bank building on the south side of the Taylorville square.
