The Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce established the Jackson Bucks program to promote flexible local shopping in Jackson businesses and show support for our community members.
Jackson Bucks is a year-round program and can be used for many occasions such as:
How do I purchase Jackson Bucks?
How do I redeem Jackson Bucks?
Accept the Jackson Bucks check(s) for the purchase. Process like any other check and deposit for “full dollar value” at your financial institution. It’s that simple!
“Business After 5” events provide an opportunity to align your business with Jackson’s most involved and successful business people.
This event is designed to bring people into your business in a more relaxing “after 5” atmosphere. The event can be held alone or in combination with another business. It can be used to showcase your business during a time of year when you feel it would be most beneficial to your individual business. The goal of “Business After 5” is to make this a monthly networking event.
Refreshments are provided by the hosting business. The choice of refreshments is left up to each of the individual business. It may be as simple as coffee and cookies or as elaborate as a full meal. Alcohol is an option, but not necessary.
Each Business After 5, provides an opportunity for the Chamber to hold it’s Cool Cash drawing. Cool Cash is a fund raising event for the Chamber, that allows a chance for our
members to win Jackson bucks with each ticket purchased.
Chamber membership mailing labels are available at the Chamber office. If the host chooses not to mail out invitations, members can be notified via e-mail or fax through the Chamber Executive Director.
If you would like to plan a “Business After 5,” please contact the Chamber office at 847-3867 or contact any Chamber Board Director. It is a great way to showcase your business!
The Welcome gift bag program provides an opportunity to share community and business information with new residents in Jackson and the surrounding area.
Items in the gift bag may vary, including such items as flyers, coupons, brochures, promotional gifts like pens, note pads etc. We also insert the Jackson County Visitors Guide, local phone book and additional information about our schools, government offices and recreation available in and around our community.
This is a great tool to showcase your business! Chamber members are encouraged to provide items that do not expire, such as coupons with “no expiration” date. It helps us keep the gift bags fresh and up-to-date. You will be notified if we run out of your product, brochure or promotional item.
New residents may stop by the Chamber office to pick up their free “gift” during regular business hours. We want to welcome you to our community!
The Chamber office has relocation packets available for potential new employees and residents.
If you anticipate hiring employees from outside the Jackson area and would like relocation packets to share with them, please contact the Chamber office. The packet includes information about our community, schools, amenities, etc. We like it here and encourage others to take a look at our town as a great place to work and live.
In an effort to support our members, we encourage you and your staff to use the “Perks for You” card where applicable. Cards will be delivered or mailed out, upon receipt of paid membership investment. The number of cards issued will be determined by the employee count information provided on your membership update form. Each full-time and part-time employee should receive one card. Employees are members, too!
If your business would like to participate in this program by offering a “special” for cardholders, please contact the Chamber Office. If you are a participating business and want to change your Perks special during the year, please contact the Chamber Office to have the web page updated with new information. Remember to update your laminated sign(s) located in your business. There are no fees to participate in this program. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to create new customer relationships, while maintaining current relationships. Additional cards and guidelines are available at the Chamber office for new employees hired after the start of the new year. Please contact us to arrange for delivery.
Our goal is to keep more consumer dollars in & around Jackson, while providing our members with a tangible Chamber benefit.
What you do is more than just a job. It is an opportunity to connect with people, to brighten a day, to possibly make a difference with the people who buy your service or product.
