The “Invest in Safford Gift Certificate Stimulus Program” has been renewed to include businesses throughout Graham County.
Safford – The popular “Invest in Safford Gift Certificate Stimulus Program” has been renewed to include businesses in all of Graham County. Business owners can apply to receive gift certificates at www.grahamchamber.org/giftcertificates. These new gift certificates will be available to the public as early as Thursday, May, 7.
Through this program, participating businesses can sell $10 gift certificates for $6 and then be reimbursed $3 for each gift certificate sold. This program allows customers to spend money at their favorite local businesses who have been negatively affected by the COVID19 crisis.
The Chamber encourages existing customers of hair salons, barbershops, and gyms to buy these gift certificates in order to help businesses that have been closed for an extended period due to executive orders from the governor’s office. With these funds, small businesses can keep up on their rent, utility, and loan payments.
The United Way of Graham & Greenlee Counties, the city of Safford, Safford Downtown Association, the town of Thatcher, and the town of Pima contributed to the reimbursement fund. The Graham County Chamber of Commerce would like to thank III Counties Distributing for donating funds to promote this program.
