Shop Local Dollar Program

gets boost from BIA

and is sold out in three weeks!!



As the local merchants are preparing for another Christmas season, it is a good time to encourage the Shop Local movement.


This year, the Listowel BIA program was offered from Nov. 13- Dec. 23, and it met the $2500 boost cap on November 30th.


Special thanks to Listowel BIA, and Libro Credit Union for their assistance in the program!


Even though the program top up is over. This is still an excellent way to keep your local economy strong, by continuing to promote local.


At Libro, we believe in working together for mutual success and we understand success of our local businesses is the heart of building a strong, vibrant community”.



Due to the expected demands, it is a first come – first serve per person basis,

and the TopUp program will end when it reaches the $25,000 maximum.

We highly recommend any large quantities  be pre-ordered by contacting the branch ahead of time. 519-291-6189.

PLEASE NOTE: Pre-authorized cheques only - or cash accepted.





This is an excellent opportunity to purchase these dollars and use for your Christmas stocking stuffers, as bonuses, or as thank you gifts for those hard to buy for people on your Christmas list. There is no expiry date either.


A LITTLE HISTORY - The North Perth Chamber of Commerce took on the responsibility of having a Shop Local Dollar Program in 2008, as a way to assist in the movement of a shop local campaign. Since inception, there has been over $170,000 purchased.



What does that mean to the local person? It means this program works! With over 50 participating merchants there are lots of local stores accepting the dollar. It makes for great gift giving!


What does it mean to the local merchant? It shows your support to the community programs and initiatives, it allows a great opportunity for local sales throughout the year and holds the potential of bringing a new customer into your store. Knowing these Shop Local Dollars are circulating in drawers, purses, pockets and cabinets – it might be a great time to remind people you accept it!

Any merchant can accept the dollars. There is no cost associated with this program. All you need to do is contact the Chamber /or the Listowel BIA to let us know and we will promote your name on the list, and merchants are encouraged to hang the sign in your window to let customers know they can spend their dollars in your store. When you are ready to redeem your dollars, you just call the Chamber of Commerce office, 519-291-1551.
