Downtown Dollars Program offers benefits for consumers and businesses

Plant City, Fla. – Today, Plant City Main Street announced the launch of a Downtown Dollars Program that will provide COVID-19 economic stimulus relief to downtown Plant City businesses. The challenges of COVID-19 have greatly impacted historic downtown’s many small businesses. Downtown Dollars is a collaborative voucher program designed to help foster recovery efforts for Plant City’s downtown businesses.

Consumers can support downtown small businesses while saving money. Consumers can purchase Downtown Dollars vouchers on the Plant City Main Street website for $5.00, and immediately redeem them at a participating downtown business of their choice for $10.00 off their purchase.

Plant City Main Street covers the difference in cost, allowing businesses full-priced sales at a time when they are being hit hard by declining revenues. Participating downtown businesses include Brick City Bricks (a LEGO store), Jessi Rae Bridal (wedding dresses and accessories), Aromatic Harmony (massages and essential oils), The Mercantile (vintage items and handcrafted goods), and more.

Downtown Dollars vouchers will be mailed within 24 hours of order placement and can be used as soon as possible to support downtown businesses that are currently open, as well as to be used after temporary closures end.

“The program will provide direct financial support to our downtown businesses while also amplifying the exposure of the amazing shops, services, and restaurants in our historic district.” shared Plant City Main Street President Josh Jimenez.

“Plant City Main Street is honored to help support the small businesses that are the fabric of our vibrant downtown community.”

Downtown Dollars vouchers will be available for purchase and redemption starting June 1, 2020 through August 31, 2020.
