$2 challenge sees good participation


January 16, 2020

As the Christmas season began, Sundance State Bank and the Sundance Times launched a challenge that aimed to visibly demonstrate the impact of shopping local on the health of our town’s local business. The $2 challenge saw excellent participation, says Andy Miller, bank president.

Inspired by a similar event running in communities across the southern part of Wyoming, the challenge was simple: we asked shoppers to set aside $100 of their Christmas shopping budget that you would otherwise have spent online or in large chain stores and malls, convert it into $2 bills at the bank and spend it in local stores.

Because $2 bills are relatively rare, they can be easily noticed as they circulate around the local economy.

According to Miller, a total of 67 people entered the challenge by requesting at least $100 in $2 bills during the promotion. The total amount of money given out in $2 bills was $8700.

The winner of the random drawing from among those people who entered the challenge is Amy Garoutte, who received $100 in $2 bills.
