Our Chamber Check Program offers a unique way to keep dollars and spending in our local economy. Shop local, shop in the Newton area!
WHAT ARE CHAMBER CHECKS?
Chamber Checks are gift certificates, purchased through the Chamber that can be spent at participating Chamber member businesses. Chamber Checks look like a check, but spend like cash. They are designed to be purchased with the intent of keeping our dollars local in Newton.
