Downtown Kingston! has announced the launch of Downtown Dollars today, Friday, Dec. 27, 2020. Downtown Dollars work exactly like a gift card and can be used in many downtown shops, restaurants and services.

According to a release from Downtown Kingston! dated Friday, Nov. 27, 2020, Downtown Dollars can be purchased in $10 and $20 increments and, until Thursday, Dec. 24, 2020, they are available at a discount. Downtown Kingston! says shoppers can purchase $100 worth of Downtown Dollars for only $80, $50 worth of Downtown Dollars for $40, and so on.

Downtown Dollars could be the perfect holiday gift for those hard to buy for people on your list, and they’re the perfect way to support downtown businesses this holiday season. There is no expiry date on Downtown Dollars.

Look for a “Downtown Dollars Gladly Accepted Here” poster in downtown store windows.
