Q: What is the Local Gift Card?

A: A single card that can be used at a number of businesses in Kelowna that are locally owned.  It’s like purchasing an Orchard Park gift card.

Q: How many businesses are there to choose from?

A: There are over 50 with new ones being added all the time! There is a full list on The Local Gift Card website.

Q: What kinds of businesses are participating?

A: Wineries, restaurants, boutique, clothing, gift shops, activities and more!

Q: Do you have to spend the money in all one place?

A: Absolutely not! One can spend as much as they want at each of the businesses. The gift cards never expire!

Q: How did you start the Local Gift Card?

A: I had my own business in Downtown Kelowna, a retail store. I found myself wishing that there weren’t only gift cards that people could buy from my business, but ALL local businesses. Thus, I came up with the idea! I support community over competition.

So WHY buy from The Local Gift Card? We are connecting locals to local businesses! Right now, The Local Gift Card has a campaign with Valley First where every $10 purchased from the Local Gift Card, Valley First will donate three meals to the food bank. By buying a gift card, you’re giving meals to people in need today!
