The City of Concord and the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce have relaunched the popular Shop Concord e-gift card program to support the city’s small businesses by encouraging residents to shop locally over the Thanksgiving weekend and into the winter holiday season. Shop Concord helps local businesses increase their sales while also benefiting consumers and providing a boost to the local economy.
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, receive a free $50 Shop Concord bonus card with every original $100 gift card purchase, a free $25 Shop Concord card with every $50 gift card purchase, or a free $10 Shop Concord card with every $20 gift card purchase. Gift cards can be used for purchases at any participating business. The bonus gift cards with purchase are available until the allotted $10,000 is distributed.
“It’s great we are able to relaunch the Shop Concord program,” said Mayor Laura Hoffmeister. “Our previous holiday relaunches have helped build growth and momentum for the program and helps us achieve our objective of supporting the local economy.”
The initial Shop Concord program launched in November 2020, with 978 e-gift cards purchased for a total of $31,020 in value. Local businesses saw the momentum and reaped the benefits. Now, with eight programs launched in the past three years to show continued support for the local economy, the total amount of gift cards distributed is more than $219,000 in value.
