Get a kick start to your holiday shopping and purchase discounted AtlantiCash, presented by First Whitney Bank & Trust, this Saturday only at the Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce.

“We wanted to think of something exciting to do for the community to encourage them to do their holiday shopping locally. Two years ago, we sold $10,000 of AtlantiCash in 20 minutes. Last year we sold $15,000 in 8 minutes. Our goal this year is to sell $30,000,” Bailey Smith, Executive Director at the Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce said.

From 9 a.m – noon Saturday, Nov. 9 only, AtlantiCash will be available in packs of $100 for $80, a 20% discount. Community members can purchase up to three packs. Payment must be made at time of purchase in the form of cash or check only. There is a first-come, first-purchased basis with only a limited amount of AtlantiCash available.

“We wouldn’t be able to pull this promotion off without the help of First Whitney Bank and their generous contribution. Their partnership helps us support local merchants and put money back into Atlantic,” mentioned Smith.

The Holiday Promotion is also sponsored by Hy-Vee, Olsen Fuel Supply, Brown’s Shoe Fit, Brymons Interiors, Fareway, Outfitters Outlet Store, Something For You and Unique Salon & Spa.

The Holiday Open House will also be taking place Saturday beginning at 9 a.m. Businesses will be offering a holiday sneak peek as well as treats, giveaways and special promotions. Participating locations include: Aunt B’s, Bonnesen’s, Brown’s Shoe Fit, Cappel’s Ace Hardware, Hanson’s Fine Jewelry, Jazzercise, The Franklin Market, The Picker’s Parlor, The Uppercut & More Boutique and Something For You.
