Partnership to give away $10 vouchers to support downtown restaurants and retailers

Downtown Dollar program starts Wednesday


TAMPA, FL– The Tampa Downtown Partnership will begin giving away $10 vouchers on Wednesday, December 2nd, that people can use at nearly 30 participating Downtown Tampa restaurants and retailers. Called the Downtown Dollar, the vouchers will be given away on a first-come, first-serve basis starting at 11:30 a.m. at Lykes Gaslight Square Park.


“This has been a challenging year for small, local businesses, and this is one small way the Tampa Downtown Partnership can help,” said Tampa Downtown Partnership President and CEO Lynda Remund. “The Partnership will use Special Services District (SSD) grant funds for the Downtown Dollar program, and it is our goal to do this on the first Wednesday of every month for the next ten months.”


Although the vouchers will be handed out during lunchtime hours, they will be good for the following 48-hours and can be used for dine-in, carry-out, goods, and services.


The Partnership will have a branded display in the park where the vouchers will be distributed. A flyer listing all the participating restaurants will also be handed out on-site, or you can visit the project’s Facebook event page for a complete listing.


A total of 200 vouchers will be distributed each month.
