Shenandoah Chamber and Industry Association will kick off the holiday seasons with the ever-popular Sno-Dough Sale, 9 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 16, at the chamber office at 619 W. Sheridan Avenue.
This year SCIA can offer 305 $100 packets of Sno-dough to customers. This local shopping promotion ensures that $30,500 and more will be spent in participating local stores this holiday season.
Customers eager to shop local can buy $100 of Sno-Dough for $80 to spend at sponsoring Shenandoah stores and restaurants. The purchase of Sno-dough packets is with cash only. The sno-dough limit is $300 per household. Customers can then spend their Sno-Dough at their favorite sponsoring businesses and save. There are 26 different participating businesses and six corporate sponsors.
“Sno-Dough sells out fast, so we encourage shoppers not to be late. There is always a line, but it moves fast,” said SCIA Marketing Director Shelly Warner. “The sponsoring businesses determine the number of packets of $100 we can offer. All sponsors are SCIA members and those that receive the most Sno-dough bills pay larger sponsorships. We have restaurants, retail stores, and services participate. It’s a win-win for retailers and customers. Sno-dough means more Christmas dollars will be sent in Shenandoah, and customers save money. It’s like getting free $20 bills. Just in time for Christmas shopping,” said Warner.
Sno-Dough cannot be spent on gift cards, and no change can be given from Sno-Dough bills. Sno-dough expires on Dec. 31, 2019. Sno-dough can only be purchased with cash on Saturday, Nov. 16. $100 Sno-dough can be purchased for $80, $200 Sno-dough can be purchased for $160, and $240 cash will purchase $300 in Sno-dough.
