The Swift Current & District Chamber of Commerce is celebrating an innovative new way to save local shoppers money.

The new 'Chamber Perks' app is available for download. This free service enables members of the Chamber to send out discounts to nearby local shoppers, encouraging them to come by and save on their merchandise. 

Karla Wiens, the CEO of the Swift Current & District Chamber of Commerce, enjoys how this offers local businesses a new form of engagement with their customers. 

"They can offer perks to anyone who happens to be in the general area, they can offer perks specific to local chamber members, or they can offer perks that are specific to their employees," detailed Wiens. "For years, as a Chamber, we have wanted to provide those business-to-business interactions and encourage business-to-business commerce within our region."

Customers will be able to take advantage of spontaneous deals, or even be rewarded with personalized discounts from their favourite stores. 

Not only will this work for local storefronts in Swift Current, but the app also works all across Canada. Travellers visiting with the app will also be able to get in on the rewards, and locals heading out abroad will be able to view their destination's local savings. 

"The Chamber network is all across Canada, which is the same as the Chamber Perks mobile app," said Wiens. "They may reside in Ontario or Quebec or eastern Canada or vice versa, but if they have that app downloaded, perks that are offered here in Swift Current or elsewhere in southwest Sask. are going to pop up for them."

Any Chamber members that would like to onboard with the app can give the Chamber a call at 306-773-7268. The newest employee at the Swift Current & District Chamber of Commerce, Emily Stade, will be available to help with any questions they may have.
