    $ Oakes Bucks

    The purpose of Oakes Bucks is to encourage shopping locally. Oakes Bucks are considered cash…because valid “bucks” are guaranteed by the Chamber.  Any Chamber Member Business can accept Oakes Bucks in exchange for services, merchandise or purchases."

    Oakes Bucks are time-dated. To keep the bank account current and stable, bills are issued with an expiration 1 year from the month they are given.

    How do you get Oakes Bucks?
    Simply contact the Chamber office to purchase Oakes Bucks in the dollar amount needed. All Oakes Bucks require an official stamp and authorized initially, therefore planning ahead is strongly suggested. If a receipt is required, please include that in the initial request.

    Oakes Bucks make great gift ideas!
    To purchase Oakes Bucks, please contact the Chamber Office at 701-742-3508 or email Emily Ptacek at oakesnd@drtel.net.
