Gift of Winchester Program / Support local businesses
The Winchester Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with Winchester Savings Bank offers a gift card program called The Gift of Winchester. It’s the perfect gift for friends, teachers and/or employees, and may be purchased at the main office of Winchester Savings Bank at 661 Main St., Winchester. Unlike a gift card, the check is redeemed by the participating business by simply depositing it into their bank account. The program is open to chamber members and non-members at this time. If your business wishes to participate, please e-mail the Winchester Chamber of Commerce so that your business name is included on the list of participating businesses. Thanks for “shopping local”!
