2009-11-30 · By Editor
The Downtown Long Beach Associates (DLBA) has launched a new year-round program offering Downtown Gift Cards for sale just in time for the Holiday Season, it was announced last week by President and Chief Executive Officer, Kraig Kojian.
Downtown Gift Cards are currently accepted at more than 75 participating businesses, including restaurants, retail vendors and service providers located in Downtown Long Beach.
The Downtown Gift Card operates like any traditional gift card with the added benefit of discounts at some participating businesses when consumers use the card to complete their purchase. From 15% off of a meal to discounts on tanning and dental services, the program provides significant incentives to consumers looking to stretch their shopping dollar and support local businesses.
In addition to the incentives being offered by some businesses, the DLBA is offering additional incentives to help boost sales during the Holiday Season. Along with waiving all activation fees, the DLBA will offer a free $10 card for every $100 purchase between November 24 and December 24.
“The Downtown Gift Card offers consumers a one-stop-shopping solution for all of their gift-giving needs and includes some incredible discounts and incentives at more than half of the 75 participating locations,” said Kojian. “There is no cost for businesses to participate, which makes this a risk-free opportunity for merchants to take advantage of a brand new marketing program.”
Downtown Gift Cards can be purchased at the DLBA office at 100 W. Broadway Ste. 120 between the hours of 9AM-5PM weekdays or online at www.downtownlongbeach.org. Plans are also underway to begin selling the cards at the Transit & Visitor Information Center at the corner of 1st & Pine Avenue. Cards can be purchased in amounts ranging from $5 to $500.
