New Program Incentivizes Community to Support Local Businesses

The City of San Luis Obispo in partnership with the San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce ‘Buy Local Bonus’, a campaign to encourage the support of local businesses, many of which are continuing to struggle due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The shop local initiative is being funded with $200,000 in revenue from the recently passed Measure G sales tax. The City will purchase up to twenty-five $20 gift cards from various qualified local businesses. Starting on December 14, shoppers can turn in receipt(s) totaling $100 or more from SLO City businesses to receive a $20 gift card to another local business.

SLO Chamber advocates for additional business support

Over the past few months, we have seen local government move more rapidly than ever before to support local businesses as they adapt to and comply with stringent State regulations.

We know that the fiscal health of the City is essential to the wellbeing of our local businesses and that continued support for local businesses will in turn support the health of our City and benefit all residents.
