Online Gift Card Sales
Buy Now, Shop Later – Sunshine Coast Gift Card program: www.sunshinecoastgiftcards.com
Managed by the Sechelt Downtown Business Association with support from Sunshine Coast Community Futures and Sunshine Coast Regional Economic Development Organization , this program is free to join and open to any business on the lower Sunshine Coast (open or temporarily closed).
This online shopping site lets customers purchase gift cards for any business who joins, and all funds are sent to the business each week to help support you while social distancing measures are in place. When you open again, customers will present their unique gift cards generated through the online store in exchange for goods and services.
To join, simply sign-up on the website and agree to honour the gift card when the time comes. For questions and inquiries, contact Theressa Logan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
