Chester Gift Card gives residents the chance to ‘win your dream Christmas’
‘Shop local is as important as ever’ is the message from Chester Business Improvement District as they launch their new Christmas competition
The Chester Gift Card has launched a new festive competition as part of a drive to encourage local shopping this Christmas. The ‘Win Your Dream Christmas’ competition offers a chance to win a £1000 Chester Gift Card.
Chester’s gift card launched in November 2020 as a means to support local businesses, driven by Chester Business Improvement District (BID).
Over 130 businesses accept the Chester Gift Card including nationals like Boots, Fatface, Hobbs, Hotel Chocolat, M&S, New Look, LUSH and Waterstones, and independent retailers, restaurants and venues including Artezzan, Chester Boutique, The Chester Grosvenor, Zugers and the Storyhouse.
Carl Critchlow from Chester BID said:
“A £1000 Chester Gift Card is on offer which would be a great prize for anyone this Christmas, especially as the cost of living crisis begins to affect households. The winner could spend their Chester Gift Card enjoying a festive show at the Storyhouse, or gathering the family for a Christmas meal at Da Noi, Bollicini or Shrub. They could get gifts for everyone at Chique Jewellers, Harriet and Dee, Leonidas Chocolates and Pyramid Glass. With a £1000 Chester Gift Card, they could do all of this and still have money to treat themselves too.
“We introduced the Chester Gift Card to support our city businesses, lock money into our local economy, and encourage local shopping. The cost of living is affecting businesses too, and they need our support as much as ever. Every Chester Gift Card purchased is an investment in our city, helping to keep businesses open and employing local people. But it also offers unbeatable local choice, giving the recipient the ultimate choice of where to spend their gift card, and what to spend it on.”
Chester’s gift card is part of the award winning Town & City Gift Card concept from fintech Miconex, active in over 150 places across the world.
Launching on the 7th November and ending on Monday 28th November, the Win Your Dream Christmas competition is offering one winner a £1000 discount code to use on the Town & City Gift Cards website. The winner can select local gift cards from one or more of the 80 plus Town & City Gift Cards in the UK and Ireland, physical or digital, up to the value of £1000 – including the Chester Gift Card.
Colin Munro is the managing director of Miconex and said: “In Town & City Gift Card research from August 2022, over 90% of people said they’re keen to support local businesses this Christmas. The Chester Gift Card is a way to make that happen. Best of luck to all those entering the Win Your Dream Christmas from Chester and the surrounding areas.”
