Mayor Billy Barlow announced today another round of the Buy One Get One (BOGO) “Blizzard Bucks” coupon program will go on sale on Thursday, March 2nd to incentivize residents to shop locally and support small businesses in Oswego.

The BOGO program partners city government with local businesses to offer store deals and dining discounts. For $25, residents will receive $50 in “Blizzard Bucks” gift cards to be used at participating local retailers and restaurants. This matched funding will be provided by the City of Oswego, using $25,000 in funding from the federal government’s American Rescue Plan.

“We are happy to be able to hold another round of the popular Buy One Get One Blizzard Bucks program this year to help businesses and give residents another opportunity at local deals and special discounts,” said Mayor Billy Barlow. “March is typically a very slow time for local business owners, so a mid-winter BOGO round will help to incentivize residents to get out and shop local during a critical time,” Barlow said.

Two Thousand “Blizzard Bucks” certificates will go on sale on Thursday, March 2nd at 5:00pm in the City of Oswego Visitor’s Center located at 201 West First Street (next to Nora’s). Certificates will be on sale until they’re sold out on a first come-first-served basis. Certificates may be purchased with cash only. The visitors center will stay open until 8:00pm. The Blizzard Bucks will expire on March 16th and there is a maximum of two offers per person.

Any locally owned small business located within the City of Oswego wishing to get more details on how the program works and how to participate by accepting gift certificates, please contact Amy Murphy via email at [email protected] This program is free for small businesses to participate and requires no monetary investment.
