GOACC Reminds You to Shop Local This Holiday Season: Looking for that perfect gift for that special someone?  The Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce wants to remind holiday shoppers that they can find the perfect gift for everyone AND shop local.  Please help support our local businesses with the purchase of their gift certificates!

GOACC instituted the Shop Olean Gift Certificate Program in 1995 and that year, certificates totaling $9,000 were sold with 35 member businesses involved in the program.  The Chamber now has more than 282 member businesses are participating in this year-round certificate program.  The certificates are sold at the GOACC Chamber office at 301 North Union Street, Olean, in increments of $5, $10, $20, $25 and $50.

FOR THE YEAR 2019 -- The Chamber sold nearly $306,900 in gift certificates throughout 2019, with $162,890 sold in December (increase from 2018 figure $140,467). Of the gift certificates sold in 2019, thousands were redeemed at more than 233 local businesses. Beauty shops, restaurants, day cares, grocers, and stores of all sizes benefit from the program.

Online sales -- The Chamber’s online shop site continued into 2019 with sales. The shop.oleanny.com site allows the Chamber to sell its gift certificates, ornaments, other merchandise event tickets online. The second season saw similar sales of 2018 in 2019 with $5,907.00.

How does the Shop Olean Gift Certificates work?  Anyone can buy these gift certificates and at the time of purchase a listing of all the Chamber members who accept certificates.  There is no cost to the members or the people who receive them.  The Chamber provides this service to our members at no cost.

The gift certificates are the right gift for everyone, they won’t be returned, and they won’t be the wrong color or size (although some may want more money!).  Local companies purchase them as holiday gifts for their employees, retirement presents, and even, workplace incentives.

Purchasing Shop Olean Gift Certificates is one of the best ways to ensure that the money is spent locally and also helps increase local, county and state tax dollars.   The Chamber regular hours are 9 AM - 4:30 PM Monday-Friday.  For more information on Chamber gift certificates, please stop into the GOACC office at 301 North Union Street, Olean, call 716-372-4433, or visit shop.oleanny.com.


SMALLER BUT STILL the SAME!  For those purchasing or receiving Shop Olean Gift Certificates this holiday season, all the denominations of the gift certificates are now sized as regular check size.  We took the hint from our purchasers to resize the certificate so that it can fit in a birthday card, gift card, holiday card, etc.

MEMBERS -- Welcome to a "value-added benefit" of the Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce. In standing with our goal to help "Members Support Members," our gift certificate program creates sales growth for you, our member merchants, and adds convenience to communities' purchasing needs.  As a participant of the Chamber's gift certificate program, you will help drive dollars back into the community, provide a solution for members who offer bonuses and/or incentive plans, and help maintain and grow Chamber member enrollment.  If you are interested in adding your business to the list, please give us a call.  It’s as easy as that!
