MONTROSE, Colo. - The Downtown Montrose Visitor Center is providing an incentive for people to shop locally.
It is offering $120 in Montrose bucks to anyone who gives them $100 in cash. The bucks can be spent throughout the city, and about 90% of businesses accept them. The offer is valid through the end of August, and the bucks can be spent through September 18th.
Officials have said that similar programs in the past have resulted in a noticeable increase for local sales, so they are confident that that trend will continue. People will spend $100 within a month, so an extra $20 is a very good deal.
The Montrose bucks can be spent on virtually anything around town if the business accepts them, and most do. Purchasing the bucks and more information can be found by visiting the Downtown Montrose Visitor Center.
