There’s been an encouraging response to the launch of the Albury CBD gift card program designed to support retailers and businesses.
The development of the gift card is perfect timing ahead of Christmas, with recipients able to redeem them at in excess of 50 local shops.
Megan Cullen from Albury CBD says every dollar spent in the community has a flow on effect and she’s confident the cards will prove popular.
“One of the groups in the community we’re trying to get on board are local employers,” Megan said.
“Ideally what I’d like to see is if you’re giving a staff bonus or gift, you could give an Albury CBD gift card, then your staff can have a choice of 50 businesses where they can spend their gift card,” Megan explained.
The list of businesses participating in the program is growing, with expectations that interest will grow into the New Year.
“We’re hoping that if people are gifting them for Christmas, in the New Year when they go to spend them, there’ll be even more businesses on board.”
