Shop Local Gift Card Program

The COVID-19 pandemic has had numerous negative impacts on communities and one of the hardest hit sectors has been small businesses.  Many of those businesses have experienced significant financial strains due to the shutdowns, labor shortages, and supply chain inflation costs.  Our businesses depend heavily on local foot traffic to be successful.

The Digital Gift Card Program is an innovative way to stimulate local consumer spending, thereby supporting locally owned small and independently owned businesses in South Gate. The digital gift card platforms have been used by municipalities for several years.  Yiftee provides the platform for digital gift cards. 

To launch the program, the City of South Gate is sponsoring a “Buy One Get One” (BOGO) feature: for each gift card purchased, the City will provide another card of the same value, up to a limit of two cards.  

The Shop SG Gift Card program is targeted at small independent businesses such as:

  • Restaurants
  • Retail
  • Personal services like hair and nail salons, spas and fitness centers.

There is no cost for businesses to participate in the program.
