New ‘business deals’ page
A “business deals” page has been added to the county’s Kama’aina First website so local businesses can share discounts and offers for services with other local businesses.
Those who want to participate can apply at www.KamaainaFirst.com and click “share an offer.”
“We’re excited about this new web page that connects our local businesses to one another,” said JoAnn Inamasu, director of the county Office of Economic Development. “Whether you’re looking for deals, hoping to revamp your company or wanting to help out your community, our hope is that locals will continue to support one another especially during these challenging economic times.”
The Kama’aina First program was created in June to try to help jumpstart the county’s economy. The website includes listings for more than 500 offers, including kamaaina deals offering discounts for Hawaii residents on staycations, restaurants, activities, services and products.
The county also has a Kama’aina First Facebook group that allows businesses to post information. The Facebook group has more than 10,000 members.
