Bainbridge-- Looking for the perfect gift? Bainbridge Chamber of Commerce President Cile Warr says "Bainbridge Bucks" are just the ticket to help you out of your predicament. "Its really kind of neat when you don't know what to give somebody. You can give them one of those and they can spend them a lot of different places," says Warr.
"Bainbridge Bucks" are issued by the chamber in denominations from $10 to $25. They look like checks, and work like cash at the nearly 100 local stores that take them. "I like to see them come through because I know that means that's local money that's being spent here locally," says owner of Bainbridge Pharmacy, Edward Reynolds. Warr adds, "What makes it great is it encourages everybody to shop at home, and to spend their money right here in Bainbridge."
And while this Christmas local merchants hope you'll spend your bucks with them, they can actually be used anytime of year. "A lot of people do them for birthdays. A lot of our high schools and other industries do them, employee improvement and different things to encourage them," says Warr.
They can be used for just about anything in town. "People can pay their light bill with them, the city takes them, Georgia Power takes them, all of our grocery stores," Warr says. But most importantly, it provides a boost for the local economy. "With the retail committee and all it really helps to, help us to develop a program to help keep Bainbridge money in Bainbridge," says Reynolds. A good bet to make the holidays a little brighter for customers and merchants alike.
