NEW!  Digital Downtown Dollars Launch

The Downtown Businesses Association of Bismarck and the Downtown Bismarck Community Foundation 501c3 have launched a new Digital Downtown Dollars gift card program to promote giving the gift of buying local.  The card can be purchased online and used at dozens of Downtown locations including restaurants, service, retail and entertainment businesses.

The Downtowners are covering the buyer’s fees for a short time as a start up promotion and hope to find local area sponsors to help cover the delivery fees and increase spending at local businesses.  The board and staff at the Downtowners wanted to find a one-stop gift card that could be used at multiple locations throughout the city center.  Other communities using this digital program have seen great success during the pandemic as a way for consumers and corporations to buy and give locally.   Bulk purchase options are also available, and the choice of digital delivery or printed delivery are available. To buy gift cards and see participating locations, go to www.downtownbismarck.com/downtown-dollars.  More locations are being added daily with the goal of 60 by the holiday season.
