Downtown Akron Partnership launched an e-gift card program in partnership with small businesses in downtown.

Street Craftery, Jilly's Music Room and Chill & Indulge are three of the participants in the Downtown Dollars E-Gift Card Program.

Downtown Akron Partnership is making it even easier for you to shop and gift local with its new Downtown Dollars Akron E-Gift Card

Recipients can use this card at their favorite retailers, restaurants, services, and entertainment venues in and around downtown Akron. 


This E-Gift Card is not your average gift card.


“Since it's an E-Gift Card, there's no plastic card to lug around or lose; it goes on your phone,” says Dominic Caruso, Communications Director. 

Select locations have partnered with Downtown Akron Partnership to be a part of the E-Gift Card Program launch. 

Businesses featured in this guide that currently accept the Downtown Dollars E-Gift Card include Chill Ice Cream and Indulge Chocolate, Jilly's Music Room and Street Craftery 

E-gift card holders can use them at any participating location. More partner locations are being added nearly daily. Be sure to check the website for updates on where you can spend your downtown dollars.


To purchase an e-card, click the link here to select an amount. Next, choose who you want to gift it to (or keep all the goods for yourself).

Be sure to provide the recipient’s name and email address. Know your recipient isn't tech savvy? No need to worry. Just check the box for “Print for Hand Delivery.” 

When you're finished, hit next to write a customized message for that special someone. For the final step, you officially purchase the gift card. The e-card will be delivered via email or text message.  


The E-Gift Cards are easy to redeem. Card holders will display it on their phones at check out and clerks will ring up the numbers. That’s it. No more fumbling around in your wallet or purse, nor conveniently forgetting it at home. 


Now how easy was that?


Happy shopping!
