Ponca City Now - September 6, 2016 12:38 pm

Our September Cash Mob will be Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. at Whimsy located at 316 E. Grand Avenue. This is a project of Shop Ponca First! Please join us.

Reasons relevant for Retail Businesses to be a member of our Chamber:

  • We promote “Shop Ponca First” which includes campaigns like our Santa Buck Giveaway, Crazy Days and Cash Mob.

  • We market our Shop Ponca First campaign and why it is important. This campaign educates people that shopping Ponca First provides jobs for our family and friends. Plus we educate that when you Shop Ponca First you provide needed sales tax dollars to our City and also help our local business community support all of the charitable needs in Ponca City.

  • The Chamber offers free customer service training called PRIDE Training.

  • Our Chamber Buck program – In 2015 over $300,000 were spent through this program keeping money in Ponca City with our Chamber members.

  • Our Member-to-Member Discount Card is supplied to our members at no cost and encourages Chamber members to shop with each other.

  • Our Chamber Directory is our version of the Yellow Pages! Chamber members look there first when looking for a new service provider or retail business. Every new resident in Ponca City gets a copy of this directory, as well, through the utility department of the city.

  • We host Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies for all new businesses, major remodels and business relocations.

  • The Chamber provides at least 4 educational workshops on how to operate a business each year.

The Chamber’s Tourism Bureau promotes Ponca City through advertising and attending tourism trade shows. This brings thousands of people to our community and has a direct impact on our retail businesses. We not only promote our attractions and events but we promote our shopping and dining in Ponca City.
