Supportland provided them with a technology solution aimed at strengthening the local economy, enhancing customer loyalty and increasing revenue with a flexible, measurable tool.

Using a free card, customers can get points every time they make a purchase at businesses in the Supportland network. Each participating business offers specific products or services that can then be purchased with points.

“We’re thrilled to be in Oregon City,” said Supportland co-founder Katrina Scotto di Carlo. “They have very proud and successful local businesses interested in building a stronger economy for the long term. Oregon City’s downtown is walkable, charming and a fun place to explore.”

Tara Vincente, owner of Denim Salvage on Oregon City’s Main Street, said Supportland has been her “personal go-to in order to discover and be inspired by local businesses.”

“It was only natural that Supportland was and is my first choice in promoting my new business while actively supporting my beloved community and fellow local businesses in a fun, simple and cost-effective way,” Vincente said.

With about 2 million transactions in its test market in Portland, Supportland deemed itself ready to enter new communities.

“Supportland is the only technology enterprise with the commitment and scalability to enable independent businesses to thrive in communities around the world,” Scotto di Carlo said. “We are nearing completion of our new software platform and looking forward to expanding Supportland into other communities in Oregon and beyond in the near future.”

Supportland’s collaborative network launched in 2010 and includes thousands of citizens who support its member businesses while also earning rewards. To download the mobile app and learn more, go to supportland.com.
