Cash-in on Main Street Beaufort Dollars again

    You can shop downtown Beaufort for half-price again.  Main Street Beaufort, USA has announced that a second round of 15,000 Main Street Beaufort Dollars will go on sale Saturday, August 18th at 10am at the Main Street Beaufort office located at 101 West Street Extension. The MSB Dollars will be sold for half price in $5 & $10 increments with a maximum of 100 MSB Dollars available for $50. Downtown businesses who are members of the organization are currently signing up to accept the MSB Dollars which will expire Thursday, September 13. Details and participating businesses can be found at http://www.downtownbeaufort.com/main-street-beaufort-dollars.

    The program proved to be successful in February when the public lined up on West Street Extension and down Bay Street to purchase the 15,000 MSB Dollars available which sold out in 18 minutes. The program is designed to boost the downtown economy at a historically slow time of year and encourage locals to shop downtown. Main Street Beaufort reimburses participating businesses for 100% of the MSB Dollars they receive.
