A new Gift Card has been launched by Wolverhampton BID that
recipients can spend at over 105 city
many places to spend the gift card it makes the perfect present for birthdays,
anniversaries and Christmas presents (if you are planning ahead). The card is
so versatile, not only can it be spent in a great range of national brands and
independent shops it can be spent in a range of pubs, bars, restaurants and
entertainment venues too.
Gift Card works in the same way as all other gift cards, you can buy one online
at www.enjoywolverhamptongiftcard.com and load the card to the value you want.
The card can be posted direct to you or you can collect the card from 3
strategically located city centre businesses.
Centre businesses are backing the gift card and with over 105 signed up so far
to accept the card in their business, with a promise of more to come. The card
not only offers a great present for whoever you give it to, as they
can choose how they spend it to suit them. From handbags, shoes, the latest
fashion through to gadgets and homeware the card can be used to treat
themselves or to a pamper at one of many hair and beauty salons, to catching a
film at the Light House, seeing a show at the Grand theatre to treating themselves
to a meal out or a cocktail or two and whilst doing all of this the card also
supports our city centre.

Wolverhampton City Centre Gift Card can be spent on almost anything, anytime,
anywhere in the city centre.
only does the card offer a great and unique gift, all businesses that are
signed up to accept the card in their stores will benefit from the fact that
whenever anyone buys this card, the money will stay in Wolverhampton City
Centre. With similar schemes elsewhere, there is evidence of additional spend,
with cardholders spending more than the card’s value.
Cherry Shine, Director of Wolverhampton BID, said:
“We’re expecting the cards to become a popular
birthday present or Christmas present or simply a special way to say thank you
for a good turn. We also think they will help take the pain out of Christmas shopping,
with such a great range of places that accept the card and with all the
signed-up businesses benefitting.”
“The card is available at any sum up to £500 and is
so versatile. Customers can use it to buy one special treat in one go or spend
it in several visits at different businesses over a number of months.”
Wolverhampton, there’s an amazing mix of multiples and independent businesses
that accept the Gift Card. The multiples include retailers such as Debenhams,
Primark, Waterstones, Boots, Marks & Spencer’s, New Look, The Entertainer
and T.H. Baker.
added that national brands supported the scheme from the start:
“If people have been given the Wolverhampton Gift Card then they
will only spend it in Wolverhampton and like any business they won’t want to
lose out on any spend, so they do really see its value”
an opportunity for larger city employers to support the city centre with the
gift card and will be asking companies to use the Gift Card to honour
long-service achievements or reward excellence. What better way for them to
show their support for Wolverhampton city centre and their staff?
