Welcome to our Shop Local Program thanks to a Restart Vermont Regional Marketing and Economic Stimulus Grant. The money was offered with a quick turn around, all funds must be spent by November 15 and program results must be submitted to the state by December 1. Let’s make it a success!
1500 cards will be distributed among area schools, non-profits and the municipalities for an anticipated $7500-$21000 to go back into our economy and local businesses!
What to do if you received a BF Buck:
- Shop local and spend it now! BF Bucks offer you $5 OFF, you will not receive change and must pay sales tax on purchases. Expires on 11/15/2020
- LIKE BFDDA on Facebook
- Tag BFDDA on FB with #BFBUCKS with a picture of yourself spending your $5 for a chance to win prizes from local businesses: J&H Hardware, The Bellows Falls Opera House, Greater Falls Pharmacy, Boccaccio’s and Sherwin Art Glass.
Disclaimer: We are sorry but not everyone will receive a BF BUCK. This was money from the state that needed to be spent quickly, and so we chose the option of school distribution. Stay tuned for more programs to benefit our community. “Our mission is to Downtown.”

Treat the BF Bucks card like $5 cash, the customer saves money on their purchase, you do not give them change, they must spend over $5 and customer pays sales tax on transaction…
Please write the total amount of transaction that included the BF Buck and write that amount on the card. Save them and remit your BF BUCKS after November 16th to BFDDA for $5 per card ! We look forward to hearing about your new customers and seeing the success of this program.
