The Marquette Chamber of Commerce recently launched a new promotional program designed to encourage local shoppers to connect with local businesses.
The Be Local, Buy Local
program offers up a mobile app on Apple and Android platforms, similar to national shopping apps, that allows shoppers to register their purchases from participating local businesses and get rewards.
Those include a weekly $300 giveaway, and a seasonal $1,000 giveaway. According to the Chamber, the app is meant to help support local Marquette County businesses, and reward patrons for their local buying habits.
Among the participating businesses are 906 Sports Bar, Border Grill, Campus Pharmacy, Down Wind Sports, Getz's, Jandron's, Lawry's, Marquette Food Co-op, Midtown Bakery, Ralph's Italian Deli, all the local Snyder Drugs, TruNorth Federal Credit Union, Valle's Market, and a long list of others across the county.
