The Local Gift Card is a single gift card that opens up the gift card market and invites consumers to spend their gift card money specifically at local businesses in their community.
Always give the perfect gift ~ the gift of local.
Once our gift card is loaded, the recipient can spend it at as many participating businesses as they would like. They can use the same gift card to buy a donut from the local bakery and then walk down the street and get their hair done or a cup of tea.
The options are limitless.
Our gift cards can be loaded in any denomination from $5 to $500 and they never expire.
More than ever, people are aware of the importance of supporting our local business community. The saying “Buy Local or Bye Local” is true.
Our program provides residents, businesses, municipalities and out of town family an opportunity to support the local business in your community while still giving the gift of choice.
Our program was created because I have been there. The idea came when from my own experience of owning a small retail store – Unless Market. I realized that having gift cards never brought new clients into my business. I found myself wishing there was a gift card that someone could use at my store, then cross the street and use at Jennelle’s store.
