A core focus of the Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce is to help our member businesses increase their sales. Therefore, we are launching the Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce Shoptauqua Gift Card program to bring more foot traffic and increased sales to our local businesses. Shoptauqua Gift Cards can be pre-ordered now and will be available for distribution in early October at our Chamber offices in Dunkirk and Jamestown.

For many years the Chamber has been running a gift check program, which has boosted foot traffic and increased sales for local businesses, providing an over $2.5-million economic impact in Chautauqua County.  We will be phasing out the gift check program to make way for the gift card. The Shoptauqua Gift Card is a closed loop system for participating Chamber member businesses, meaning that cards sold stay in the County with our members, keeping money in our local economy.

The Shoptauqua Gift Card is a free member service that is easy to setup and easy to use. We encourage current gift check program participants and other Chamber members to sign up as soon as possible for the Shoptauqua Gift Card.

We encourage local consumers to purchase Shoptauqua Gift Cards. The cards make a great gift for a birthday or holiday. Many employers in our area purchase them as employee appreciation gifts. When you buy a Shoptauqua Gift Card you are supporting local businesses and our economy. Our local retailers, restaurants and service providers face unprecedented competition. In particular, large internet sales platforms are crippling storefront businesses across the nation. The Shoptauqua Gift Card is a way to support our local business people and their employees. So, please consider purchasing Shoptauqua Gift Cards.

For more information about participating in the Shoptauqua Gift Card program, or to pre-order gift cards, please contact the Chamber at (716) 366-6200 or (716) 484-1101.  If you are a Chamber member business and would like to accept the new Shoptauqua Gift Card at your business, it's easy to get you set up.  Here's some information. 

In the meantime, Chamber Gift Checks are still available and will still be honored for one year from the date of purchase.  If you would like to purchase Gift Checks now, please call us or stop by either Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce location at:

10785 Bennett Road, Dunkirk NY 14048
