DOWNTOWN BONUS DOLLARS PROGRAM LAUNCHES - BUY A $50 DOWNTOWN GIFT CARD AND GET AN ADDITIONAL $25 GIFT CARD FREE!
Downtown North Bay's volunteer board of directors is pleased to announce the launch of the "Downtown Bonus Dollars" program.
A new Shopify page has been set up on the Downtown's website and allows the public to show their support for downtown by purchasing gift cards online.
For every $50 gift card you buy, Downtown North Bay will top up your purchase with an additional $25 Downtown gift card at no charge.
"This helps downtown in two ways. First, it entices the public to get great value for their money, and purchase gift cards they can spend downtown. Secondly, the Downtown board is using unspent funds from postponed or cancelled events to provide a direct economic stimulus and give back to our member businesses and services," says Board Chair Michelle Trudeau.
"I'd like to thank board member Katie Bevan for bringing this idea forward, and the Co-Chairs of Downtown's Marketing & Promotions Committee Rae Brenne and Nick Clement for bringing it all together" adds Trudeau.
"People can use these gift cards now, for curbside purchases or takeout, so it keeps things moving in the short term. They can also be saved for when things return to normal, ad people can shop store to store, which we know they miss" says Trudeau.
"This is a win-win in the sense that the public gets a great deal, and our downtown businesses can see that their board is doing what we can to invest in their well-being," she adds
The public can purchase their gift cards online 24/7 by going to the downtown's website and clicking the "Online Store" button, or by visiting https://store.downtownnorthbay.ca/
