The Hoboken Business Alliance (HBA) has announced the launch of its 40 percent Off Gift Card Program that allows residents and visitors to purchase discounted gift cards from local businesses now through Sept. 30, while supplies last.
With more than 100 small businesses participating, customers will have the opportunity to get more for their money while supporting shops, eateries, salons, barbers, fitness studios, and other retailers.
“As a way to give back to those who are the fabric of our Hoboken home, the HBA Gift Card Program incentivizes residents and visitors to support local businesses by purchasing gift cards now and have a reason to go back and visit later,” said Gregory Dell’Aquila, president of the Hoboken Business Alliance which oversees the city’s Special Improvement District.
As businesses begin to reopen, they need support following months of disruption due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
In March, many brick-and-mortar businesses were forced to close and shift services online.
Last week, the governor permitted restaurants to reopen at 25 percent capacity indoors.
Through the HBA Gift Card Program, shoppers can purchase up to two discounted gift cards from each business providing them with capital.
People can purchase gift cards from their favorite businesses or discover new ones.
“We are thrilled to participate in the Gift Card Program, which allows our customers to get even more for their money while visiting us, thanks to the HBA,” said Niki Klaczany, owner of Up & Out Salons with locations at 341 Bloomfield St. and 1106 Washington St. “As a small-business owner, we … are so grateful to everyone who shops locally and supports us and so many other businesses here, especially in these more challenging times.”
Businesses are offering a $25-value gift card for $15, a $50-value gift card for $30, or both.
The HBA will cover the cost difference, helping hometown businesses flourish while giving residents more reasons to shop locally.
To purchase a discounted gift card, visit any of the participating locations during usual operating hours through the end of September.
