The Apache Junction Area Chamber is rolling out the Shop Local program.
Designed to help our local area businesses during the slower summer months, and to keep everyone shopping local, the promotion runs from May 1 to Oct. 31.
This year there are 36 businesses participating including restaurants, services and attractions.
With the purchase of a Shop Local card for only $1 customers will get discounts and special offers. More information can be found on ajchamber.com or by calling 480-982-3141.
Shop Local cards are available at the Apache Junction Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center, 567 W. Apache Trail in Apache Junction, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday.
