As we approach Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales events and the Christmas Season, please give a thought to spending your hard earned cash here in Deer Lodge. Many local stores are opening early at 5 am on Friday November 28th and you can make some great savings and support our local businesses at the same time. Another way of supporting Deer Lodge this year is by using Christmas Cash. This is a scheme set up by the Powell County Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with the Deer Lodge Banks. Loans of up to $2,000 are available, with 0% interest and a $15 application fee. Payable in 10 monthly installments from January, Christmas Cash can be spent at the following Deer Lodge Businesses;
