Bury St Edmunds Town Centre Gift Card

Bury St Edmunds Gift Card BLOG

Shoppers in Bury St Edmunds can find the solution to all their gift purchases this year with the brand new Our Bury St Edmunds Town Centre Gift Card.

This initiative from the Business Improvement District (BID) organisation works in the same way as buying a gift card for any individual retailer, but can currently be used in more than 70 different outlets in the town centre from jewellers to cafes and gift shops to galleries, with more businesses signing up every week. It’s the first town centre card of its kind in Suffolk.

As well as giving a vast selection of spending options the card is Mastercard-based allowing users to purchase with confidence. And not only does buying an Our Bury St Edmunds Gift Card take the uncertainty out of present buying, it’s also helping to support all the businesses that make Bury St Edmunds a unique shopping or eating out destination. It’s additionally an ideal way for businesses in the town to reward their staff at Christmas, while continuing to support the local economy.

More information and to purchase the gift card online visit the Bury St Edmunds Town Centre Gift Card website.
