Gift Card Staff Parties

Staff party season is going to look a little different this year. Many businesses, non-profits, charities and institutions typically have annual parties for staff and volunteers during the holiday season.

This year, we want to encourage people to continue to patronize their favourite restaurants, but not in large groups. The Greater Peterborough Chamber of Commerce, Peterborough and The Kawarthas Economic Development and the Peterborough Downtown Business Improvement Area would like to encourage employers to provide their staff/volunteers/supporters with gift cards to local restaurants instead of hosting them at large parties.

Gift cards in lieu of Christmas parties will still give your staff an opportunity to dine out (or in!) safely and support local restaurants who are facing a difficult winter.

Our local business community are loyal supporters of local restaurants and continuing that support will help them through a critical part of their recovery from the current COVID-19 crisis.

You can find some great local restaurants at the following sites:

The Peterborough Downtown Business Improvement Area also sells Downtown Dollars that can be used at various downtown restaurants and shops.
