Hart Economic Development Team launches Take Me to Hart Gift Card Incentive Program to help local businesses during COVID-19

Hart, MI – The new Hart Economic & Redevelopment Team (H.E.A.R.T.) aims to pump $17,500 into Hart businesses through its #TakeMeToHart Gift Card Incentive Program (GCIP).

The Gift Card Incentive Program will work like this: for every $25 gift card purchased from a local business using H.E.A.R.T.’s online portal – bars, restaurants, retailers, service businesses, etc - the Hart Economic & Redevelopment Team will add a $10 match making the value of the card $35 for the first 500 gift cards sold. Once the program sells out, businesses will be issued a check for the amount they sold during the campaign, including the contribution from H.E.A.R.T.

“This program aims to provide a local stimulus to help our small businesses during these unprecedented times. They’ve been here to support us when we need them, it’s our turn to return the support,” states Nichole Steel, Community & Economic Development Director for the City of Hart.

Gift cards are available for purchase starting May 22, 2020 at www.takemetohart.org/events.

The Hart Economic & Redevelopment Team would like to keep this concept going. If you are interested in sponsoring or contributing a donation towards a second round of gift cards to help our small businesses, please contact the H.E.A.R.T. office at (231) 301-8449 or info@takemetohart.org.
