Herriman City Mails Out Coupons, Encourages Residents To Shop Local
HERRIMAN, Utah – Herriman City is getting creative to encourage residents to shop local and help businesses bounce back from the impacts of the pandemic.
They are calling this $110,000 investment “Herriman Bucks.”
“They started going out in the mail at the end of May, and we’ve sent one to each of the 13,000 households in the city,” said Tami Moody, Herriman City Spokesperson.
The program gives Herriman residents a coupon to get $10 off a $20 purchase at a participating business.
“You can use that at restaurants, the grocery store, gas stations, we have some home-based businesses like landscapers,” Moody said.
As for the funding, the program the city took $10 from residents’ property tax and gave it back to them to invest into the local economy.
It’s an investment American Burgers restaurant manager Audriana Henningsen is grateful for.
“Business has been non-stop,” Henningsen said. “I’m surprised when a customer comes without one of the coupons.”
The businesses have another month to collect the coupons and redeem the funds from the city.
“Right now I am at $2,800!” Henningsen said. “That is what I could redeem from the city right now.”
American Burgers is one of nearly 40 businesses participating in the program. Visit the Herriman City website for a full list.
