[ARCHIVED] Shop Concord Gift Card Program Relaunched

Shop Concord Logo of Hill and Sun

The City of Concord and the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce have relaunched the Shop Concord program to support the city’s small businesses by encouraging residents to shop locally over Memorial Day weekend and throughout this summer season. The Shop Concord program will help increase sales for local businesses that have experienced significant setbacks during the pandemic while also benefiting consumers and providing a much-needed boost to the local economy.    

Similar to the inaugural program last November, Shop Concord is relaunching thanks to a $10,000 contribution from the City of Concord to supply a bonus gift card with every purchase, while supplies last. Customers who purchase a $50 e-gift card through Shop Concord receive a free $25 e-gift card in return, which can be used for purchases at any participating business. Customers also have the option to purchase a $20 e-gift card through Shop Concord and receive a free $10 e-gift card in return. The bonus gift cards with purchase will run until the allotted $10,000 is distributed.

The e-gift cards can be purchased on the City of Concord’s Yiftee page, which includes a list of participating merchants. The cards purchased can be redeemed at any participating Concord business. The digital nature of the gift cards allow customers to split the original and bonus portions to keep for themselves or gift to others via text or email.

“As restrictions lift and businesses see light at the end of the tunnel, this is the perfect time to encourage people to get out there and spend local,” said Mayor Tim McGallian. “Shop Concord provides a direct benefit to our community, as we saw in late 2020. The collective wave of gift card purchases will go a long way toward helping our local businesses bounce back faster.”
