- Downtown Duncan Dollars -
Downtown Duncan Dollars are a promotional item created by the Duncan BIA to bring shoppers into Downtown Duncan and into your business! They can be purchased at the Duncan BIA office and in addition to serving as prizes during contests, events and other promotional activities, Downtown Dollars Gift Certificates have become a very popular gift item that can be used towards a fashion item, spa treatment, new tires, yoga classes – the list is limitless! Many downtown business owners give Downtown Dollars as Christmas, birthday & service gifts to their employees. Once someone receives Downtown Dollars, that person can use them in the same way as a gift certificate or cash at any downtown business. Please note that like a gift certificate, cash change does not need to be given out. If the customer spends only $15 of a $25 certificate, encourage them to maintain a store credit. Once the dollars have been used, the merchant stamps the back of the dollars with their business stamp (or writes the name of their business on the back) and brings the dollars to the BIA office, where they are reimbursed with a cheque. If the merchant is busy, we are also happy to come by and pick up the dollars – just call the office at 250.715.1700. The BIA will always honour Downtown Dollars, so please never refuse them! If customers ask where they may be spent, please give them a Downtown Duncan shopping brochure or direct them to our website. Please do not hesitate to call us if you have any questions or concerns.
