Holiday Shopping Card Promotion

It's not too early to start thinking about the Holidays!

The Bethlehem Chamber of Commerce is working on our Annual Holiday Shopping Card Promotion for November 29-December 31, 2014. The Holiday Shopping Card is an initiative of the Chamber’s Retail and Hospitality Committee, which focuses on our small businesses and storefront retailers in town. The program is a continuation of our active Buy Local Initiative and a way to encourage the Bethlehem community to support local businesses during the Holiday shopping season before making trips to area malls. Participation is open to Member and Non-Member businesses. We print and distribute 10,000 Cards in November, prior to the Thanksgiving holiday.
