Welcome to the Bay Bucks Membership Directory, designed for easy use and updating. Here you'll find a list of businesses and service providers accepting Bay Bucks for all or part of your transactions.
As you'll see, it's a diverse and inviting assortment of enterprises. They're all supportive of our local currency. When you patronize them using Bay Bucks, you're not only receiving the direct benefit of fine local goods or skills, you, too, are supporting an initiative in community resilience.
It's important to know that you or your business does not have to be a member to utilize Bay Bucks, although we would like you to join, for there are benefits to membership and they are mutual. Member businesses are listed on the website and in the print directory. The website allows businesses to have descriptions posted and announce specials in real time. We can also help members with promotional ideas that involve the currency and build community.
Within the Grand Traverse region, however, Bay Bucks is an open system. Anyone can accept Bay Bucks for their wares, and anyone with Bay Bucks can offer them to vendors (often with highly educational results). It all helps to strengthen the system, promote local exchange, and retain the wealth we produce here. Besides which, it's fun.
