What is Shop Dawson?
Shop Dawson is a Dawson City Chamber of Commerce initiative designed to boost Dawson City’s local economy.
Through social media marketing, our Shop Dawson Gift Certificate program and special campaigns, we aim to bring local entrepreneurs into the spotlight. We strive to develop effective strategies to shift consumer's focus back into our community. connecting local demand to local supply, with an emphasis on sustainable business practices and fostering the growth of our community's entrepreneurial resources.
By shopping local, you help small businesses thrive, and your money is re-invested in your own community.
When we shop local, we help Dawson's businesses to provide jobs for our neighbors and friends. We help to fund city services such as road maintenance and funding for our community through sales tax dollars.
When we shop local, we are investing in the character and prosperity of Dawson and we embolden our local entrepreneurs.
We truly do enrich the health of our community, and our future, by shopping local.
How does it work?
1. Through keeping an eye on our Shop Dawson Facebook Page for local deals and updates.
2. Through purchasing Shop Dawson Gift Certificates.
What are Shop Dawson Gift Certificates?
Shop Dawson Gift Certificates are redeemable vouchers with a cash value ($10, $20 and $50) that are a great way to show someone your appreciation, while also supporting our local industries and services.
As a participating business, you will automatically be included in the program once you join our membership. When a customer presents you with a certificate, you accept it as payment like you would a personal check, and present it to the Dawson City Chamber to be cashed for the full amount. There are no processing fees or percentages retained by the Chamber: you get the full face value of the gift certificate. The only cost for the program is your membership fee.
You can also participate in the Shop Dawson Program by purchasing our gift certificates to use as employee incentives and bonuses, loyal customer gifts, and even your personal use.
Where can you get Shop Dawson Gift Certificates?
To purchase, contact the Chamber office at 993-5274 or email us. We accept cash and all major credit cards, and we can even mail them to your home if you are from out of town!
And now, since November 2019, Shop Dawson Gift Certificates can also be purchased year round at The Raven's Nook.
Where can you redeem them?
Gift certificates can be redeemed at any business that is currently a member of the Dawson City Chamber of Commerce.
What else does Shop Dawson do?
We provide our members with social media marketing services and consulting, promoting them every chance we get. As well, we offer participation in all our events and campaigns designed to connect consumers with local products, such as our latest campaign, The Shop Dawson Holiday Raffle.
