Panama City Beach Stimulus – $30 on the 30th

by July 24, 2009 • 5 comments

Panama City Beach doesn’t need a billion dollar package in order to stimulate our local economy, although a few bils would be nice, all we need is our community to take a little initiative and have that initiative met with incentive. On July 30th, the incentive will be in place with the $30 on the 30th program sponsored by the News Herald. All it needs is your initiative.

The idea behind the $30 on the 30th program is to encourage residents of Panama City Beach to get out and spend $30 on local good or services that they wouldn’t normally use. Say, for example, if you frequent a place like Flamingo Joe’s on the East End of Panama City Beach, head to the West End and try a place like Bayou Bill’s or vice versa. All over the beach, participating businesses will have great deals and specials in place. Businesses throughout the beach intend to show you there very best side and you can find a myriad of things on which to spend your $30.00 from restaurants, grocery stores and even florists.

So, next Thursday on the 30th grab $30.00 and hit the town. You get to try all sorts of new stuff, the businesses get a economic stimulus and everyone’s happy.

If you are a local business that is participating in this initiative, please post who you are and what specials you are running in the comments below.

I think this is a great idea!! Is there any way you might be able to update the article with names of some of the different businesses that will be participating in this – or maybe participating business owners can post a comment or two?? I know that there are a lot of businesses out there, but sometimes they become part of the scenery, so getting some names of places out there might spark interest and promote the readers to try someplace new they never thought of going. Just an idea!!
