Buy Local Bridgman

In an effort to inject money into the local business economy, the Southwest Michigan Regional Chamber and the Greater Bridgman Chamber & Growth Alliance (Bridgman CGA) are excited to announce the launch of the Buy Local Bridgman Community Gift Card!
This community gift card, unlike reloadable visa debit cards, ensures the money spent stays local. It’s also not store-specific, which means it can be redeemed at a number of participating Bridgman merchants. 
While monitoring the continued impact that COVID-19 has on businesses, representatives from the Bridgman CGA Board spoke up about wanting to do something specifically for their business community. “After reviewing multiple options, this was the easiest and most effective way to infuse Bridgman businesses with extra funds in an effort to sustain them” says Brett Boyd, current Board Chair for the Bridgman CGA.
Additionally, the Bridgman CGA has generously promised a dollar-for-dollar bonus match for all gift cards purchased for a limited time. This means if you buy a $25 gift card, they’ll send you another $25 free. If you purchase a $50 gift card, you’ll get $100 worth of purchasing power. This offer is only available for a short time and is limited to one (1) per person, regardless of recipient. Additional promotions will be announced as the program progresses.
“The Bridgman community has seen amazing growth over the last few years, and we cannot risk losing that momentum,” said Sarah Spoonholtz, Director of Membership and Events with the Southwest Michigan Regional Chamber. “Our #buylocalberrienchallenge on social media has shown how impactful a dedicated consumer spending campaign can be for local businesses. We hope to move the needle once more by launching this gift card and helping our beloved Bridgman merchants return to the pre-COVID revenue that so many are in desperate need of.”
Consumers can purchase these community gift cards online from SMRC program partner Yiftee by visiting They are all digital, so customers can either print them out or save them directly to their mobile device. From there, they simply need to present the card to a participating merchant who will process it like any other manual entry Mastercard transaction.
Current participating merchants include: 
• Accents at Himalaya Textiles
• Haymarket Brewery & Taproom
• Paws to Wash
• Small Town Grounds
• Tapistry Brewing
• The Sandpiper 
Additional Bridgman Merchants may opt in at any time through the Yiftee purchase portal or by contacting Spoonholtz directly at or 269-932-4040
