Community Cash Available for the Season


October 4, 2017

The Glasgow Area Chamber of Commerce & Agriculture is kicking off the 2017 fall and winter season with its annual Community Cash program.

Community Cash scripts will be available beginning Monday, Oct.16, at First Community Bank in Glasgow and Hinsdale, Valley Bank and Independence Bank. Individual shoppers may borrow up to $1,000 and married shoppers can borrow up to $2,000, on approved credit. These are no interest loans and there is a 10-month repayment period starting in January 2018.

Lobbies at participating banks will be open till 5 p.m., on this day to allow all residents to take advantage. Also, as an additional incentive, the Chamber will pay the $10 processing fee for all loans written on Monday. The last day to purchase the cash is Friday, Dec. 29, and the last day to use it is Friday, Jan. 5, 2018.

The purpose of the Community Cash program is to encourage residents to shop locally. Glasgow has a very good variety of quality products, services and retail stores to choose from for all of your shopping needs. Community Cash can be used to purchase a variety of goods, whether it be Christmas gifts or to help assist in daily expenses. A list of all of the participating merchants and promotions will be available at the Chamber office, on the Chamber website and at participating banks and stores.

In 2016, 69 business members participated in the program, 123 loans were issued for a total of $121,850 spent locally. The Chamber encourages residents to buy locally for all of their shopping needs.
