PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Greylock Federal Credit Union is encouraging the community to Shop Local this October. 
Greylock Federal Credit Union is offering a personal credit card incentive to remind members and cardholders to spend their money with local merchants, shops and restaurants.  
"Small businesses are the backbone of our small towns and cities, and we all have a role in helping them survive the COVID-19 pandemic," President and CEO John L. Bissell said. "Greylock helped more than 360 small businesses secure Payroll Protection Program loans earlier this year, but this crisis is far from over and we all need to do our part to keep our neighbors employed and help our local businesses thrive."
The promotion rewards cardholders who spend more than $500 total this month at small businesses in the communities Greylock Federal Credit Union serves, with a $10 bonus. If a member charges more than $1,000, the reward will be $25. Big box stores are excluded from the promotion.
"We will all get through by working together," said Bissell.

However, the suspension will be held in abeyance until the governor has declared that the pandemic is over, therefore there is no specific date of suspension at this time.
The city's senior sanitarian Andy Cambi had reached out to restaurant owner Lynne Soldato in September to discuss a complaint received through social media about a gathering at Zucchini's that did not follow pandemic protocols. 
Cambi told the board that Zucchini's held a 50-person wedding on Aug. 29 that was brought indoors, and in pictures on social media, it was observed that there was no social distancing and no masks being worn, and there was dancing.
