Destination Deerfoot City has unveiled its new property Gift Card. The Deerfoot City Gift Card can be spent with multiple participating businesses at the north east Calgary outdoor shopping centre, including retail, hospitality and leisure.
Both anchor tenants and independent brands will accept the new Gift Card, including indoor skydiving centre iFlY. Deerfoot City Gift Cards are available to buy online from $5-$500.
Jessica Sims-Fink, Marketing Manager at Destination Deerfoot City said : “A Gift Card is something that we are regularly asked for by customers, so we are thrilled to launch the Deerfoot City Gift Card. Being so close to Calgary Airport, and with our Food Lodge, Restaurant Campus, Style District and Central Campus, we really are a destination for not only shopping but leisure time too. The Deerfoot City Gift Card gives customers both choice and convenience.”
“Deerfoot City is known for its events, like Block Party in the summer and Santa photos during the holiday season,” adds Jessica. “The Deerfoot City Gift Card will play a big part in our events, as prizes and giveaways. It’s an extension of the Deerfoot City brand.”
Vancouver based Shape Properties announced the reinvention of Deerfoot Mall from an enclosed mall into an 80-acre open air shopping, dining and social space in 2017, with over 50 shops, restaurants and services now open across the property.
Chris Quick is the General Manager at iFLY and said:
“iFLY has locations around the world including our Deerfoot City venue. We’ve joined the Gift Card because we want to be an inclusive part of Destination Deerfoot City. Every business needs to diversify and collaborate. There’s a saying that on your own, you’ll go a long way quickly. Together, it might take a little longer, but you’ll go much further.
“After the turmoil of the last few years, we have to find more ways to keep revenue local but it has to be super easy for the business and the customer. It took us less than 10 minutes to sign up to accept the Destination Deerfoot City Gift Card as payment from customers. Customers can now come to iFLY and spend their Destination Deerfoot City Gift Card with us as easily as any other card payment.
“Working together through the Gift Card will help us to share the dream of flight with even more people, create foot traffic and keep Destination Deerfoot City busy. The benefit for the customer of the new Deerfoot City Gift Card is the choice. They’ll get this Gift Card loaded with a lump sum that they can spend as they want at Destination Deerfoot City. They can fly, then can get food, they can shop. That is huge.”
