Gift card program supporting downtown Tucson businesses takes off

From the April's Tucson-area coronavirus coverage: 1,200+ Pima County cases, stay-home order extended series

The Downtown Tucson Partnership is offering free money to patrons wanting to support their favorite downtown businesses during the coronavirus pandemic.

Since Friday, nearly half of 1,000 available gift cards, worth $25 each, have been purchased to support more than 50 businesses. The nonprofit organization is adding an additional $10 to each card for free. 

The organization says the $35,000 investment will go directly to the area businesses "when they need it most." The list includes restaurants, museums, breweries, boutiques, hotels, grocers, spas and gyms.

Patrons can take advantage of the Gift Card Incentive Program here.
