100 Businesses Team Up To Reboot Glasgow’s Economy With City-Wide Gifting Initiative 

Glasgow’s tourism industry, Experience Glasgow has teamed up with over 100 tourism businesses across the city to offer a new gifting incentive to reboot the economy.

In a bid to welcome back visitors to the city, the city-wide gift card is working with your favourite local businesses to create a fresh autumn ‘Gift Your Glasgow’ campaign that will be launching offers and incentives next month.

New exciting businesses to the Glasgow gift card initiative include top attractions like Fore Play Crazy Golf, outdoor adventure specialists Pinkston and late-nite boutique bowling alley Bowlarama on Glassford St.  Foodies will enjoy family-run Italian favourites like Il Pavone and Eusebi’s, alongside lunch essential Sprigg and steak specialists, Spanish Butcher.

Featured bars include tropical Tiki bar and their newly launched outdoor area, along with modern Scottish pub, The Gate to name a few. You can see all the attractions, leisure and hospitality businesses at www.glasgowgiftcard.com

Starting from next month the gift scheme will announce special offers and incentives that you can redeem across the city to #supportlocal and drive destination footfall and spend across Glasgow.

HOW IT WORKS: 
  1. Simply head to www.glasgowgiftcard.com
  2. Choose an amount, gift the card
  3. It’ll be sent out by post ready for spending.
  4. You can spend the full amount in one go or spend it in different places at your leisure.
  5. Gift cards are valid for one year
  6. Look out for the autumn ‘Gift Your Glasgow’ campaign dropping soon!

Gordon McIntyre, Vice Chairman of Experience Glasgow, said:

“Supporting independent business has never been easier with the Glasgow Gift Card – a prepaid Mastercard that encourages spend right here in the city.

“If there is a local small business that you love, they need your support now more than ever. Many businesses are closing, and others are seeing reduced demand.

“The Glasgow gift card is the perfect way for you to show your support. Whether you give a present to a friend or treat yourself to an experience, be sure to look out for our new campaign launching next month.”
