We see you, and we hear you.
With the challenges we all face right now with COVID-19, many of our local and small businesses on the sunshine coast are suffering greatly. We need to adapt quickly and pivot now to help keep the lights on and save our local economy.
We’re here to help.
The Downtown Business Association of Sechelt, Community Futures and Sunshine Coast Regional Economic Development Organization have teamed up together to fund and launch this online shop for Sunshine Coast residents to purchase gift cards for future use at your business when the quarantine measures are over.
The idea is simple. People purchase gift cards through this online store. Funds will be sent directly to your business via e-transfer every Friday night to help support you while social distancing measures are in place, and customers are forced to stay home. When it’s safe to do so, your customers will present you with a unique gift card generated through the online store to use for your goods and services. You will verify the unique code and purchaser's name (we will provide you with a list) and redeem the full value of the purchase.
All you have to do is provide us with an email address to receive e-transfers and communicate with you, upload a logo for your business (good quality) and agree to honour the gift card when the time comes.
There is no charge for you to use this service! Simply fill out the form below to get started.
Please note: If you are a business that may face the likelihood of closing permanently please be considerate about listing your business in this program. The program is designed to help businesses with cash flow who have the full intention and likelihood of re-opening their shop when the COVID-19 crisis is over. Thank you for your understanding.
