Shoppers – FOR YOU

 Keep It Local Columbia County has a goal of helping citizens find their local businesses to promote shop locally for so many reasons!

They offer campaigns in the Spring and Holiday for businesses to participate.  The first Coupon Exchange has been partnered with the South Columbia County Chamber of Commerce and the Clatskanie Chamber of Commerce.  The idea is to cross promote one another’s businesses by giving a coupon out to those who purchased from the local business.   Merchants want to thank their customers for shopping local with a coupon!  This is a test pilot program.  Keep it Local Columbia County committee hopes to offer to all communities next year.
