The Franklin County Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to keeping our local dollars local and to support that mission we are proud to announce the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce Gift Card program.
Imagine one gift card that would allow someone to try a new restaurant in Turners Falls, visit a beautiful shop in Shelburne Falls, have an adventure in Charlemont, get a massage in Greenfield, or golf in Northfield. We envision a card that inspires people to visit a wide variety of businesses throughout Franklin County, both their old favorites and places they haven’t tried yet. It will make the perfect gift for any occasion and the potential is limitless!
Very important to the Chamber is that this card is convenient for our vendors. We have partnered with Northeast Merchant Systems to offer businesses an easy way to participate. Northeast Merchant Systems will work with each business individually to establish the easiest, most convenient system for their needs. A reasonable and customary 3% transaction fee will cover any administrative costs to the Chamber.
We want this gift card to be very convenient for our customers too! Gift cards will be sold at the Chamber office but we will also partner with Greenfield Savings Bank and select merchants to sell them throughout Franklin County. This means that purchasing a Franklin County gift card will be quick and easy with multiple locations available. Card holders will easily be able to see all locations accepting Franklin County Chamber of Commerce Gift Cards by visiting our website.
This gift card and all the businesses that participate will be prominently featured on our website and our social media pages. We will also provide a window sticker that shows you accept and/or sell the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce Gift Card at your business. We expect to launch the program officially in late October, just in time for the holidays.
