Gift Card Grab Week (4)

If you have been struggling to find a way to help support local businesses during the COVID-19 shutdown that has shuttered thousands of them, the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce has come up with a way you can help that’s both easy and safe.

The chamber is sponsoring something called Gift Card Grab Week from Sunday, May 3 to Saturday, May 9, and dozens of businesses from the Saucon Valley area and beyond are participating. Many are offering customers special savings during this time, as an added incentive to consumers to help fuel the support they need.

For example, Black River Farms vineyard and winery in Lower Saucon Township is including a complimentary wine tasting with each purchase of a $25 gift card, and Coopersburg Diner has a deal that rewards purchasers of $25 and $50 gift cards with bonus bucks. Buy a $25 gift card from the diner and you’ll receive $5 in added value, or buy a $50 gift card and receive $15 in additional value.

Diner gift cards as well as many of the other deals advertised on the chamber’s Gift Card Grab Week page may be purchased online.

It’s important to note that while there are great deals from restaurants and other food-related establishments, there are also retail deals on everything from jewelry to antiques to books.

Local service providers are also offering specials on future services such as massage, yoga, tattoos, car washes and fun family experiences like a visit to the Lehigh Valley Zoo.

Hellertown barber shop Gary’s Custom Cuts is offering 10 percent off the purchase of gift cards valued at $25 or more.

Other Saucon Valley area businesses offering special deals during Gift Card Grab Week include Pondelek’s Florist & Gifts, Quest Termite & Pest, Salon Mia, Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, Hellertown Auto Wash, Get in Touch Massage Therapy and Sweet & Sassy Lehigh Valley.

Even if you feel you’re not in a position to offer financial support at this time, you can still help by getting the word out with shares of news like this on social media. Another way you can help is by taking a moment to write a positive review of a local business that you normally frequent, since many business owners could also use some moral support, too.

“We need our small business community and they need us—it’s that simple,” said chamber executive vice president for affiliated chambers Jessica O’Donnell in a nes release about the event. “Gift Card Grab Week was created to encourage widespread community support to shop local and buy local. We can’t think of a better way to boost activity and sales for our local small businesses than our Gift Card Grab Week concept.  Special thanks to everyone in advance as we look to rally together!”
