With local businesses forced to close or reduce their hours amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the newly launched FanSaves Helps Gift Certificate Program is helping give business owners a boost across the country and in Downtown Lindsay! The program is working with the Lindsay Downtown BIA and features gift certificates from local stores which can be used once things get back to normal.
“We noticed some areas were starting their own gift certificate programs so we decided to create a one-stop-shop and a hub for gift certificates from local businesses in partnership with Chambers, BIAs and
organizations in regions across Canada. This is our way of giving back during this time” explained FanSaves Co-Founder & CEO, Shannon Ferguson. The program is completely free for businesses to take part in, with plans to help as many communities as possible while encouraging social distancing and allowing businesses to stay afloat and generate revenue while the world tackles the current crisis.
The buying process is simple as visitors to the website are able to select the business they want to support in their region (or the region of a friend or family member), click on the preferred denomination
and checkout. They will then receive a digital gift certificate which they can print out and use once things get back to normal!
