People may not realize that when they spend their money here at home, the sales tax revenue contributes to keeping business alive by creating jobs, raising the tax base, supporting community services such as police, fire, recreation and parks along with other municipal services and even allowing support for many non-profit organizations. By simply, making the decision to shop and dine here in town, people directly contribute their own quality of life.
We think that by getting this message out in the face of our community, we can really make a positive impact on their spending habits thereby giving a boost to your sales and our local economy.
We hope you will join us in spreading the message and remembering to keep you sales tax dollars within the community. If we all make the effort, this can have a very positive impact over the entire Santa Maria Valley.
As we approach Small Business Saturday (November 26) and the holiday season, the Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce is partnering with our Chamber members to help encourge the community to shop local and keep money here in the Santa Maria Valley.

Your business card sized coupon will appear on a flyer inserted into our Chamber Connection newsletter, and mailed out 800+ local community members. Learn more and sign up HERE. Space is limited!
