FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Chamber of Commerce is still looking for local businesses to join the Shop Local Coupon Book launching on January 24th.

The deadline for coupon submission is January 3rd, and the Chamber is looking for a wide range of businesses to participate.

The coupon book would be available to local and regional businesses to provide sales, discounts and value-added benefits on goods and services. Coupon books would be distributed through the Chamber, local businesses and School District 60.

Those interested in submitting a coupon for their business can do so by calling the Chamber at 250-785-6037, emailing info@fsjchamber.com, or registering your coupon here.

The Chamber and School District 60 are also working on an interactive module for students in Grades 5 to 8, showing how money spent at local businesses supports the community.

After receiving a $40,100 grant from the BC Chamber, the FSJ Chamber will be launching a Youth Shop Local Club.

The coupon book will be released with the Shop Local Campaign launch on January 24th in conjunction with the youth program.
