The Hutchinson/Reno County Chamber of Commerce announced Friday the launch of a new gift certificate program. Beginning October 15, the Chamber will have H-Bucks available for purchase at the Chamber office. H-Bucks is a Chamber gift certificate program, launched just in time for the holidays. Any community member can purchase H-Bucks and they may be spent like cash at participating Chamber member’s stores.

The H-Bucks program is designed to keep dollars local and promote a “hometown” spending atmosphere. Officials say keeping money in the local economy encourages businesses to expand and develop, helps to fund local government budgets, creates local jobs, reduces our carbon footprint, and fosters community pride. The program will be a great complement to the Chamber’s H-Factor initiative.

H-Bucks may be purchased in person at the Chamber office, 117 North Walnut, Hutchinson, or by phone at 620-662-3391. Both cash and credit cards are accepted as payment and they come in $10 and $25 increments. There are no additional fees included in the purchase of H-Bucks.

The Chamber’s hope is to make the H-Bucks program a community wide effort. H-Bucks will make great employee incentives, family gifts, and stocking stuffers during the holidays. They are the perfect way to ensure that hard-earned dollars are kept in Hutchinson and Reno County. For more information on the Chamber H-Bucks program, please visit the Chamber website at

    This kind of sounds like a failure right off the bat. There has to be an incentive to purchasing the Hbucks. The problem I have is that money doesnt stay local anymore. When that business pays its electric, gas, cable, cell phone bill, credit card bills, etc, that money all goes out of this city. I spend a lot here in town, but only where I can save money. My money is hard earned like everyone else’s. I almost find myself laughing inside when I hear Spend it local. I know that the businesses dont buy there stock inventory local.
