Community Gift Card Program Supports Local Business
With Memorial Day just around the corner, the City of Concord and the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce are excited to relaunch the “Shop Concord” campaign to support your business during this challenging time. The program, which was developed to help local businesses that have experienced economic uncertainty as a result of the pandemic, allows your business to increase sales while also keeping our dollars local.
How it Works
Thanks to a $10,000 contribution from the City of Concord, for a limited time, customers who purchase the Shop Concord Card will receive a free $25 Shop Concord Card with every $50 purchase, and a free $10 Shop Concord Card with every $20 purchase, encouraging more customers to Shop Concord and generate even more sales for your business.
Program Details for Businesses
The Shop Concord cards are managed through Yiftee, an online gift card and promotion platform that allows community eGift cards to be purchased on a centralized Yiftee page and redeemed at any participating Concord business. The Shop Concord program is designed to keep dollars local while benefiting both local businesses and residents through the promotional deal described above. Participating in the Shop Concord program is a great way for businesses to gear up for the holiday weekend and gain exposure to new customers.
The best part is there is no cost for your business to participate in the program, and setup is easy. Customers’ gift cards are managed through Yiftee’s portal, not by individual businesses. Any business that accepts MasterCard can participate, with no changes to your POS and no special devices. You can even highlight your Memorial Day promotions on the Concord Yiftee page, a one-stop shop for customers to access all Concord deals. So why should you sign up?
- It’s FREE for businesses

On Wednesday, May 26th, the Shop Concord promotion will relaunch, and the gift card promotion will become active on the City of Concord’s Yiftee webpage.
