Chamber: ‘Shop Near Home for the Holidays’

By TYLER KNEESKERN, Chamber of Commerce of Sandusky County

The Chamber of Commerce of Sandusky County is encouraging shoppers to “Shop Near Home for the Holidays” this season. Through Dec. 31, Chamber member businesses are offering shoppers incentives to shop local.

A Shop Near Home for the Holidays passport is posted to the Chamber’s Facebook and website,  Shoppers can print off a passport which will include a QR code for each participating member business. Once scanned, each QR code will generate a link for a discount or special offered by the corresponding business – with discounts up to 50 percent off in-store purchases.

Shoppers will also be able to link directly to each businesses’ website from the QR code, allowing them to browse inventory and get information on each Chamber member before stopping in to make their purchase.

To scan the QR codes, simply hover your smartphone camera over the QR Code and click on the link that will automatically generate.

The Chamber of Commerce of Sandusky County has been helping businesses succeed since 1946. For information the campaign, call 419-332-1591 or visit
