York Gift Card is an initiative designed to support city centre businesses by locking spend into the local economy. Since its launch in October 2019, the scheme has rapidly grown to become the largest of its kind in the UK. All of our levy paying businesses are eligible to participate, it’s quick and easy to sign up and is completely free of charge.
The card is available to buy from The Potion’s Cauldron on The Shambles, The Hole in Wand at Coppergate or online at www.yorkgiftcard.com
Once purchased the card can be used at a wide range of businesses, and spend can be spread across multiple places. To date over £120,000 of gift cards sold. Over 300 local businesses are currently signed up to accept the card. The full list is available form our designated website www.yorkgiftcard.com/where-to-spend/
The Card is adorned by a modern and stylish design of the Minster. The artwork was commissioned by the BID from local York artist Jonathan Williams who can be found working at The Braithwaite Gallery on Low Petergate.
