Fairfield, Conn. – The Fairfield Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Town of Fairfield, is congratulating the community for their support of the new Fairfield Community eGift Card program, purchasing over 700 cards in two months, reaching over $42,000 in value!
“I couldn’t be any more pleased by this impressive result, and I’m so very, very proud of our community for their incredible support of this new initiative, designed specifically to support our local business community," said Beverly Balaz, President of the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce.
First Selectwoman Brenda Kupchick, remarked, “I am thrilled we launched this program in partnership with our Chamber to support our local businesses during this difficult time. I, myself, gave the Shop Local egift cards as presents this holiday season and they were well received. This program is a success all around and it makes me happy that our residents supported our local businesses. A big thanks to our Chamber for making it happen.”
Mark Barnhart, Director of Community and Economic Development, commented, “I am so pleased with the initial success of this program, which couldn’t have come at a better time to help support our small business community. The Fairfield Community eGift Card program is truly a win-win for everyone, with monies raised being spent and reinvested locally. The response from the Fairfield business community and public has been fantastic thus far and I look forward to continuing to work with the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce to continue to grow this program, which has quickly become the centerpiece of our Fairfield Buy Local Campaign."
In closing, Beverly added, "We want to acknowledge our community again and say ‘thank you’ for their great achievement. But, equally important, I do want to remind everyone that this is not just a holiday program. It is a ‘year-round’ program. We encourage our residents and area friends to continue with their support of our local business community throughout the whole year, and to celebrate other special occasions like Valentine’s Day, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Mother and Father’s Day, teachers, graduations, etc., with Fairfield Community eGift Card purchases.”
