Did you know that our free Greater Cape Ann Gift Check Program sells over $75,000 worth of gift checks every year? With the holiday season soon upon us, we encourage all of our members who are not already participating in the FREE Greater Cape Ann Gift Check Program, to sign up today.
This is a great way to encourage our community to shop local and to gain additional exposure for your business. Please contact Sam at firstname.lastname@example.org to add your name to our list of participants.
There are three easy steps to use Greater Cape Ann Gift Checks:
- The customer gives a Gift Check to the business as payment. These are CHECKS.
- If the sale is less than the amount on the Gift Check, the customer receives change.
- The business fills out the merchant name and deposits the Gift Check in the bank as a regular deposit (like a regular check), receiving the full amount.
A list of all participating businesses is included with each purchase. To view our current list of participants, please click here. We promote this program with signs at registers, window decals, posters, and in our newsletter. We also send a special notice to Human Resource Directors of Cape Ann’s largest employers and mention the program at Chamber events. If you are a current participant of the program, we also encourage you to promote that you accept our Cape Ann Gift Checks through your social media channels and website.
*It is important to inform your staff of this program so they can be prepared when they are presented with a Gift Check. Please contact us if you would like a tutorial or have any questions.
