New “Love Sligo” Voucher Gift Card Launching November 26th
A new local gift card will launch in November in Sligo – just in time for Christmas. The Love Sligo Gift Card is being driven by Sligo Business Improvement District (BID) to bring spend into the town and provide support for a wide range of sectors including retail, hospitality, hair & beauty and other services.
This new voucher card has no sign-up fees, no commission charges or admin charges for businesses – 100% of spend goes directly to the businesses who sign-up.
Speaking on the launch, Gail McGibbon CEO at Sligo BID said, “Customers often don’t realise the costs involved for businesses to accept gift cards. By choosing the Love Sligo Gift Card, customers can be reassured that they are supporting local businesses. With one gift card, we can showcase the best of Sligo.”
Businesses can accept the new Love Sligo Gift Card alongside any other gift cards as it is another way for customers to pay and one that costs local businesses nothing. Sligo BID believe that the time is right to introduce the new gift card as a means to drive tourism, encourage corporate sales and boost the economy. Employers can also use the Love Sligo Gift Card to reward and incentivise their staff, taking advantage of the ability to give staff a non-cash small benefit of up to €1000 each year, tax free.
The voucher scheme has over 50 participating businesses. If you are a BID member and wish to join the scheme, contact Gail McGibbon at Sligo BID.
The gift card will be available to purchase in 6 locations in Sligo:
- Centra, Sligo Credit Union
- Wards Pharmacy
- Eason (O’Connell St)
- Healthwise Pharmacy Connaughton Road
- Sligo Tourist Office at O’Connell St.
