What is the Buy Lakewood Loyalty Program?
In early 2012, Mayor Summers announced the launch of the redesigned Buy Lakewood program. This program is a consumer education initiative about the importance of buying locally as well as a customer loyalty program. It has been redesigned to make it simple, functional and flexible.
Buy Lakewood 2012 will feature a program called Five Percent Fridays. Participating businesses will offer a 5% discount on Fridays to individuals who show their Buy Lakewood card. In addition to Five Percent Fridays, businesses may choose to offer additional discounts to Buy Lakewood participants. The program will begin on Friday, February 24, 2012.
Lakewood businesses can sign up to participate in this program below. Once a business is enrolled, they will be added to the online business directory. Businesses will also receive a window cling displaying their support for the Buy Lakewood.
Anyone who shops in Lakewood can pick up a Buy Lakewood card at Lakewood City Hall (12650 Detroit Avenue), LakewoodAlive (14701 Detroit Avenue #LL10) or the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce (16017 Detroit Avenue). Individuals can also sign up for a card below. If you already ready have a Buy Lakewood card, it is still valid and you can use it for Five Percent Fridays.
The Buy Lakewood Program is a joint partnership between the City of Lakewood, LakewoodAlive, the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce and the Madison Avenue Merchants Association (MAMA).
Why buy Local?
Buying locally helps to improve our community in many ways:
- It keeps dollars in Lakewood’s Economy. For every $100 spent at a locally owned business, $45 stays in the local economy, creating jobs and expanding the city’s tax base.
- Likewise, this program embraces what makes Lakewood unique. Lakewood is a suburb where we shop, eat and entertain – it is what makes our neighborhood our home.
- Residents will also be able to have more choices. A marketplace of hundreds of small businesses helps to ensure more innovation, competition and lower prices over the long term. Local businesses choosing products based on what their local customers need and desire guarantee a more diverse range of product and service choices.
- Lastly, local businesses are the lifeblood of our community. When we keep our dollars in the city, every purchase contributes toward our schools, our culture and the well-being of our friends, relatives and neighbors.
Why support the Buy Lakewood Loyalty Program?
The Buy Lakewood! Program has been implemented to support both the residents and merchants within the city. This program will provide citizens discounts at no additional charges while providing local merchants a boost in economic activity.
