Downtown Davis shoppers have the opportunity to get a bit more than simply the perfect gifts for everyone on their lists this holiday season.
Shoppers who spend more than $100 at retail stores downtown may submit their receipts for purchases made between Nov. 29 and Dec. 24 by mail, fax or email.
Mail them to Davis Downtown, P.O. Box 72497, Davis, CA 95617; fax them to 530-756-6504; or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All those who submit receipts will be entered into a drawing for 10 $100 downtown Davis gift cards.
Downtown Davis gift cards make wonderful gifts, marketing director Nina Gatewood says. They may be purchased in person at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St.; Avid Reader Active, 605 Second St.; or at the Davis Downtown office, 826 Second St., near the Amtrak depot.
Davis Downtown office hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Gift cards also may be purchased online using a PayPal account or credit card; visit www.davisdowntown.com.
