The Wayland Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the return of the very generous “Our Town” partnership with Consumers Energy that will help both our chamber members as well as our community and residents. To assist in the continuing challenging time, Consumers Energy is helping our community members stretch their dollars while also supporting small businesses and their employees in Michigan. Consumers Energy is providing a dollar-for-dollar match for gift cards/certificates purchased through participating members of local chambers of commerce.
The “Our Town” gift card promotion will double the amount shoppers can spend in communities across Michigan. Example: Buy a $25 gift card and receive an additional $25 gift card to spend. Our community graciously received $9,000, which was spread among the chamber members who elected to participate.
Lauren Youngdahl Snyder, Consumers Energy’s vice president of customer experience: “Consumers Energy is excited to again support Michigan’s small businesses and communities we serve this holiday season. ‘Our Town’ made an impact across Michigan last year, and we look forward to seeing the program’s dollars and shoppers give a boost to shops and restaurants in their hometowns.”
The Wayland Area Chamber of Commerce would like to offer our sincerest thanks to Consumers Energy. Providing the chamber with $9,000 to match gift card purchases, will be a great boost to the amazing chamber members who have endured many hardships during 2021.
