Grover Beach shoppers have another chance to participate in the city’s “Buy Local” gift card program.
Grover Beach city leaders said they plan to relaunch the program after seeing its success in 2021 to further stimulate the economy and support local businesses.
During the months of February through April, community members and visitors can earn free gift cards for participating Grover Beach businesses by shopping, eating, and supporting other businesses in Grover Beach.
When a buyer spends $ 100 or more in the retail, restaurant, brewery, wineries, fitness, and salon / personal services industries, they can choose from a list of participating businesses to receive a $ 25 free gift card.
To claim the gift card, buyers must upload their receipt of $ 100 or more to southcountychambers.com and choose their preferred gift card. The selected gift card can be picked up at the California Welcome Center in Pismo Beach or mailed to the recipient within one to two weeks.
According to city officials, in 2021, approximately 2,500 receipts were submitted for a total of $ 225,000 in customer spending. The Town of Grover Beach purchased $ 53,000 in gift card purchases from nearly 30 local businesses, which generated a total of $ 278,000 in funding for local businesses.
For this second round of the Buy Local Program, the Town of Grover Beach will purchase up to twenty $ 25 gift cards from each qualified local business selected, up to a total of $ 500. Grover Beach businesses can apply to participate in the Buy Local gift card program here to take advantage of generous gift card funding and promotional opportunities.
