It was another successful year for the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce’s gift certificate program. The program has kept nearly seven thousand dollars in the community each of the past two years.
Patty Hornbuckle, CEO of the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce says the holiday season proved to be a good one for gift certificates, especially with businesses giving them to their employees as a Christmas bonus.
Part of the idea behind the Chamber gift certificates is to keep local money local, and although the certificates are popular during the holidays, they’re available year round.
Hornbuckle appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
