Please join 2nd Ward Alderman Lionel Jean-Baptiste, 4th Ward Alderman Don Wilson, Downtown Evanston Board of Directors, staff, and representatives from the Evanston Community Foundation and First Bank and Trust at an official ribbon cutting ceremony at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, December 1, at 820 Davis Street, Suite 151, where they will announce the launch of the new Downtown Evanston Gift Card.

Just in time for the holiday shopping season, Downtown Evanston will offer yet another gift option. The gift card is a prepaid card which can be redeemed against dining, shopping and services at over 110 participating downtown Evanston businesses. Look for the window decal with the Downtown Evanston logo and tagline “Gift Cards Accepted Here.”

The gift card may be purchased Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., at the Downtown Evanston office at 820 Davis St., suite 151; and Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. – 6 p.m., and Saturday 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at First Bank and Trust at 820 Church St. The card is available in denominations from $5 to $500.  Gift cards may be purchased with Visa, MasterCard and Discover.

The gift card operates on a closed loop system, which means it is valid only at participating downtown Evanston businesses. Purchasers of the gift card will also receive a “Passport to Downtown Evanston” featuring valuable offers from businesses that welcome the gift card.
