Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) May 22, 2014
Yiftee, an award-winning web/mobile gifting service, and the Town of Danville, CA jointly announce that they are making shopping at favorite local spots easy with the new “Danville Gift Pass.” The partnership with Danville is the first of many in the works, to help build the shop local efforts in towns across the country.
Shopping locally helps build local prosperity. More dollars circulate within the local community, supporting the character of the shopping district, bringing people together, creating more local jobs, and providing better and more personal service. A well-supported business environment strengthens the downtown and can increase home values and create better schools. Local businesses such as realtors use the Danville Gift Pass as a convenient way to show off their wonderful downtown shopping area and stay in touch with their clients, and potential clients. Corporations use it to reward employees and reinvest in their local communities in one fell swoop. Shopping locally is an investment in a community’s future.
Friends, family, employers and professionals can purchase the Danville gift pass online (http://www.yiftee.com/danville) for visitors and residents of Danville, write a personal message and immediately deliver it via email or text. Recipients can choose from one of forty (and growing) participating merchants in Danville, or mix it up and spend it at multiple Danville locations. The Danville Gift Pass is a great way to appreciate a colleague or client, celebrate a friend or family member, and thank a coach or teacher.
“The Town of Danville has been searching for a Town-wide gift card solution to promote local shopping, dining and gifting in our community. Yiftee’s online gifting service is the first business to provide such an opportunity, with no cost to the merchants. It was exciting to develop the Danville Gifting Network, and the business community is thrilled to have an easy and convenient gifting solution for customers and residents to shop local,” says Jill Bergman, Economic Development Manager, Town of Danville.
