Chamber offers $5,000 in gift cards to first comers

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – American Express has named Glenwood Springs as one of 100 communities across the country to receive $5,000 in gift cards to boost local sales on Small Business Saturday.

On Friday, Nov. 23, the Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association will distribute 200 American Express gift cards valued at $25 each for shopping at local stores on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 24.

Small Business Saturday falls between Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, and Cyber Monday, the Monday after Thanksgiving. Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses and their communities.

Gift cards will be given, one per person, to the first 200 people to stop by the chamber’s visitor center at 802 Grand Ave., starting at 9 a.m. on Friday. The visitor center is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, although there’s no guarantee on how long the cards will last.

“Let’s create wealth for the community and put $5,000 directly into our local economy on Saturday” said Marianne Virgili, president and CEO of the Glenwood Springs Chamber.

The chamber will also be giving away tote bags and balloons.
