A special campaign to boost business in the Pelican Rapids, Dunvilla and Erhard areas is continuing through the holiday season. 

The “$10,000 Buck Blast” has been an ongoing promotion, spearheaded by the Pelican Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce last summer—in collaboration with Bell Bank and Minnesota National Bank. 

“Pelican Bucks” will be available at the two Pelican Rapids banks, and the special bucks can be spent at area businesses. The special bills are available now at Minnesota National and Bell Bank in Pelican Rapids. 

The Chamber is aiming at a $10,000 goal, with the goal of helping small business during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Customers receive an “automatic” shopping discount, as $100 in Pelican Bucks for only $90; or $50 for only $45. 

The promotion is similar to past Christmas season shopping campaigns. 

The Pelican Bucks are available now and must be spent by Dec. 31.
