Longer buying season and business “buy in”

This December and January, holiday shoppers will once again have the chance to get a little more bang for their local buck. The Butte Bucks program kicks off on December 8, offering participants the opportunity to purchase $10 in Butte Bucks coins for $8, and then spend them at participating businesses. They will see some changes to the program, however, designed to make it more sustainable and bring outside dollars into the community.
According to Dave Ochs, executive director of the Crested Butte-Mt. Crested Butte Chamber of Commerce, the chamber will print more coins this year, give people longer to spend them, and reserve a set number of coins for tourists staying at local hotels and lodges. Participating businesses will also see participation fees waived in exchange for help in covering the shoppers’ discounts.
