Flint & Genesee is filled with local businesses from restaurants to retail, event venues to professional services. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy, a small business is defined as a business with less than 500 employees.

In Flint & Genesee, local businesses reflect the culture of the area with hardworking spirit and perseverance. Challenged by an unprecedented year in 2020, local businesses have shown resilience and continue to serve the community.

For this reason, the Flint & Genesee Chamber partnered with Consumers Energy and the Michigan Municipal League Foundation to give back to local businesses through the “Our Town Gift Card Match Program.” The program provided funds to local businesses to allow those businesses to double gift card purchases up to $50. For example, if a patron buys a $25 gift card at a participating business, they will receive $50 worth of gift cards for that purchase.

With this program, community members are able to extend their dollars when shopping at local businesses, which benefits both the community and Flint & Genesee businesses.

Although some businesses have sold out of their match funds, many businesses can still match patrons’ purchases.

Participating businesses with funds available include:

  • B-Dogs at the Flint Farmers’ Market
  • B’s Bowling in Flint Township
  • Cork on Saginaw in downtown Flint
  • Edible Arrangements in Grand Blanc
  • Fenton Winery & Brewery in Fenton
  • Flint Children’s Museum in Flint
