The Boulder City Chamber of Commerce wants you to know about a number of initiatives they have going this Holiday Season.
1. Shop local – Shop Local – SHOP LOCAL: The Best Dam Gift Card is about the best dam gift you can give! With 16 + participating local merchants (and more joining all the time) this is a great way to give a gift card that you know goes towards supporting our local Boulder City Businesses. You can buy it online HERE, and you can even do bulk orders. Got a lot of people to buy for? This makes it super easy and is a great way too for employers to reward their employees as well! The perfect BC stocking stuffer, we say!
2. Boulder City Tree Ornament: The Chamber has created a tree ornament with the “Home of Hoover Dam” tag line. It’s lovely and the perfect complement that should be on EVERY tree in town – don’t you agree? You can get them at the Chamber office and Nevada Welcome Center, 100 Nevada Way, during business hours, which are generally M – F, 9am – 5pm. The cost is $15 each or 2/$25.
3. Boulder City Time Passages: This is the SECOND book created by local Boulder City photographer extraordinaire, David Pechulis! We told you about his first book HERE published back in 2021. As usual, the proceeds go to support the Chamber and David’s charity work. So let’s get this straight. With this one purchase you can: 1) give a great gift that glorifies Boulder City, 2) support local entrepreneurial foundation and 3) support a local artist. If that isn’t a Win-Win-Win then we don’t know what is!
You can purchase or learn more by contacting the Chamber directly, or by using the QR codes on the flyer below. Chamber phone: (702) 293-2034 Chamber email: Info@bouldercitychamber.com.
