Main Street Beaufort Dollars sell out in 18 minutes

in Community by

Main Street Beaufort USA’s program designed to assist it’s member businesses during a traditional time of the year when there’s a downturn in sales was a huge hit yesterday when the dollars officially went on sale at 10am.  MSB used $7,500 from their budget to initiate the program where consumers could purchase the ‘dollars’ at .50 cents on the dollar, with a maximum purchase of $100 per person. 

Deal-seekers staked out the offices hours prior to the 10am sale, and by the time the doors opened, there was a line stretching out to, and up, downtown’s Bay Street.  The $15,000 worth of  ‘dollars’ sold out completely by 10:18am.

If you’ve purchased Main Street Beaufort Dollars, the list of participating businesses is available on MSBs website at
