Wall's “Home for the Holidays” 2016 - Over $150,000 spent locally

The holiday season is here, and Wall community members are spreading holiday cheer - $150,000 dollars worth!

The 2016 “Home for the Holidays” campaign showed once again that Wall community members support Wall’s local businesses. For every $100 spent in a participating local business, participants could enter a completed “punch card” to win one of 13 gift certificates. The campaign ran from November 7th – December 7th.

Each punch card represented $100 spent locally and there were over 1,500 punch cards submitted. This shows $150,000 in local spending during the campaign.

2016’s numbers almost doubled 2015’s “Home for the Holidays” punch card counts. In 2015, over 1,700 $50 punch cards were turned in, reflecting $87,000 in local spending.  

The “Home for the Holidays” campaign, organized by the Wall Badlands Area Chamber of Commerce and Wall Economic Development Corporation, first came to Wall in 2015 as a way to encourage local shopping during the holiday season.
