Help DMS, Help Dixon, Help Local Businesses -- And all you have to do is get a Dixon Money Saver Coupon Book for $5! These coupon books have the potential to not only benefit Dixon Main Street by helping us raise funds for our events and programs, but they will drive traffic to our local businesses and then in turn increase the local sales tax and then in turn benefit our schools, roads, and infrastructure. Yes, buying a $5 book has a much broader impact on the community than you might realize!
Pick up our first-ever Dixon Money Saver Coupon Books for just $5 and get more than $300 in savings to places like Mama Cimino's, McDonalds, Subway, Crystal Cork, Alley Loop, Splash of Color, Crescendo Hair, Audio Video Connection, Books on First, Spurgeon's Bay and more! Books are currently available at Books on First, Audio Video, Trein's, Crystal Cork, Alley Loop, Dixon Paint Company and Dixon Main Street, with more locations to come soon! Proceeds will support our DMS events and programs like Scarecrow Festival and Musical Fridays.
