The perfect gift for everyone on your list!
Chamber Checks are issued by the Charlevoix Area Chamber of Commerce and are redeemable much like a gift certificate or traveler's check. Charlevoix Chamber Checks function just like a regular check and can be used to purchase goods and services from our member businesses.
Charlevoix Chamber Checks make a great gift and encourage purchases at our member businesses. A person can choose where and when to use Chamber Checks, redeeming them at local restaurants, shops, or for professional services. In many ways Charlevoix Chamber Checks function like community-wide gift certificates. By giving Chamber Checks to friends and family, you give them access to fabulous goods and services town-wide. More elegant than cash, and more flexible than a gift certificate, Chamber Checks provide a fun way to give to those you care about and support local businesses at the same time.
Chamber Checks will be sold exclusively at the Charlevoix Area Chamber of Commerce in denominations of $5, $10, $20, $25, $50, and $100.
