Online platform offering discounted gift cards for local businesses

Apr 15 2020, 1:08 pm

Many small businesses across the country have been forced to slow or completely stop operations amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

One way to help keep these spots afloat during this trying time is through the purchases of gift cards, which can be used when physical isolation becomes a thing of the past.

Newly launched online platform Gift Forward is offering gift card sales that benefit both the business and the buyer, because cards are sold “on sale.”

The online initiative offers gift cards for popular spots in Toronto, but restaurants can sign up all across Canada.

The service offers a way to support your favourite local spots in a time when you may be watching your wallet more closely, as well.

And finally, the initiative is continually accepting new small businesses to be involved. If you don’t see your go-to place on the list, you can recommend them here.
