City Centre Grande Prairie has unveiled its new Gift Card as part of its mission to revitalize the heart of the city.

The Grande Prairie City Centre Gift Card was funded by the Downtown Association, and can be spent like a debit card with a multitude of participating businesses in the core, including retail, services and hospitality.

Gift Cards can be purchased online with delivery direct to the recipient, or in person from the Grande Prairie Downtown Association office.

The new Gift Card replaces the previous paper dollar system. Wendy Bosch is the Executive Director at Grande Prairie Downtown Association and said it was time to modernize the Gift Card:

“We had a paper system in Grande Prairie for 20 plus years, but we couldn’t market it in a substantial fashion. People don’t want paper these days, they want a modern Gift Card that is easily obtainable and functional, that is what we are offering with the new Grande Prairie City Centre Gift Card. Without question, we have an extensive retail and dining array of businesses as well as health & wellness services like tattoos, pedicures, fitness, beauty salons or body sculpting. We have great businesses that offer gaming activities such as cards and board games, books, VR and laser tag and even learning opportunities like martial arts and dance. We also have the businesses that offer the unique attributes such as the library, live theatre, Legion and a retail art gallery - this gift card satisfies any gift of choice.”

“People are increasingly interested in what local businesses are doing, they want to shop local but they also want to buy locally made goods and show their support for Canada overall. The Grande Prairie City Centre Gift Card is an initiative that we can all get behind, to have a positive impact for our city.”

The Grande Prairie City Centre Gift Card is issued by Peoples Trust Company. Card funds are not insured by the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) or any other government deposit insurer or agency. Funds do not expire, are non-reloadable and no cash access.
