United States Chamber of Commerce Accredited

Dash for Santa Cash

12/03/2017

Money spent local, stays local! There are an estimated 27 million small businesses in the United States and statistics reflect that 99% of all employer firms are small business. In addition to the workforce numbers, 52% of dollars spent at independent, locally owned businesses stay in our community, supporting local organizations and services. That’s why shopping local is very important to the Chamber, with our mission being to assist local businesses. When local businesses thrive, the community thrives.

“We love being a part of this beautiful community,” said Roxie Lovelace, owner of Smart Repair. “Every dime spent at Smart Repair goes back into Ardmore! Christmas is our favorite time of the year and we love sharing that with all of our customers.”

The Ardmore Chamber of Commerce has announced the dates for this year’s “Dash for Santa Cash”. The event will be held for four days: Thursday, December 7, 2017 through Sunday, December 10, 2017. Participating merchants provide tickets to their customers for visiting their stores, and then additional tickets based on the dollars spent in the store. All Ardmore merchants are eligible to have their business participate.

Jill Beane-Johns is the owner of Beane’s Western Wear and a participant in Dash for Santa Cash. “Anything we can do to promote shopping local rather than online is so helpful for Ardmore and its economy,” said Jill. “It’s especially important for the smaller businesses who have so much to offer! It’s great to have an event like this that draws shoppers into the store, especially people who may not be regular or previous customers, and gives them a chance to see what all we carry.”

Smart Repair has participated in Dash for Santa Cash since they first opened. “The Chamber’s Dash for Santa Cash gets us and our customers in the holiday spirit and gives customers a great opportunity to get discounts that they may not otherwise get,” continued Roxie.

“The Dash for Santa Cash retail promotion is one of the most popular Chamber activities of the year, and we’re excited that 2017’s participation exceeds recent years. Santa Cash can only be used at the participating merchants, benefiting merchants both during and after the promotion,” states Mita Bates, President and CEO of the Ardmore Chamber.

$2,500 in Santa Cash will be awarded during the promotion. The winners will be announced at the Ardmore Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at 3:00 pm. Santa Cash can only be used at any of the participating “Dash for Santa Cash” merchants.
