Marshall Bucks are purchased at the Marshall Welcome Center in increments of $10 or $25. Buy Marshall Bucks through December 23 and receive a festive snowman envelope perfect for easy gift giving.

Why buy local? According to Sustainable Connections, when you buy from an independent, locally owned business, rather than a nationally owned business, a significantly larger portion of your money stays local strengthening the economic base of your whole community. Small businesses are the largest employer nationally and provide more jobs to residents and donate more than twice as much to local non-profits, events and teams compared to big businesses. American Independent Business Alliance (ambia) adds that independent businesses help give your community character and provides personalized care and choices.

Put your money where your home is. Give a flexible gift that supports local businesses. Purchase Marshall Bucks today at the Marshall Welcome Center located within City Hall at 323 W. Michigan Ave. in downtown Marshall or call 269-781-5163. Call ahead and your order will be ready for hassle-free, easy pick up.
