BLACKSBURG, Va. (WFXR) – Wow…talk about a popularity contest!
Late this past week, the Town of Blacksburg announced the start of a promotion called Blacksburg Bucks where residents could purchase gift cards in increments of $20 and, with special CARES Act funds, the town would instantly double the value by giving the purchaser an equal amount of Blacksburg Bucks to be spent at one of dozens of businesses around Blacksburg.
Well, the program sold out almost instantly but quick on the draw, the town has announced that more Blacksburg Bucks will be offered beginning in early December.
Pre-orders will begin to be taken on the second round of Blacksburg Bucks, totaling $200,000 on Tuesday, Dec. 1 by calling one of the six National Bank locations in Blacksburg.
