New mobile gift card program sponsored by Downtown Fremont Inc. serves employers, and merchants as a simple way to give back to our community.

Downtown Fremont Inc. is proud to announce the new Think Fremont Community Card, a community-based digital gift card that makes it fun and easy to keep local spending local. Purchase a Think Fremont Community Card E-Card by visiting the Downtown Fremont Inc. website at www.downtownfremontohio.org or use the following link: https://www.downtownfremontohio.org/buycards/. With this card, you can write a personal message and send it to family, friends and colleagues via email, text, or physical copy. Recipients can choose to spend it at one of 21 (and growing) participating merchants in Fremont —or mix it up and spend flexibly at multiple locations. All-digital and always available on your phone, the Think Fremont Community Card is great for birthdays, holidays, teacher appreciation, coach gifts, or just to show your appreciation to a friend. Now you can give back to the community while you support local businesses especially this Christmas season and in 2021.

The Think Fremont Community Card eGift card is the perfect way to show love for your community and delight a friend!

Why supporting local businesses is so important
Participating in this program means supporting the heart of what makes our community unique. The purchase of a Think Fremont Community Card eGift Card creates a pool of cash that local businesses in Fremont can rely on. Studies have shown that local independent retailers recirculate 47% of their revenue back into the community, while only 14% of national chains’ revenue stays in the community. More dramatically, restaurants recirculate 73% of their revenue back into the community, versus only 30% for national chains.

By supporting local businesses, more money continues circulating through the local community—this is achieved through a combination of profits paid to local business owners, wages paid to local workers, goods and services procured locally for internal use or resale, and charitable giving within the community. If you’re looking for a way to do some good or want to know how you can help the community you love, send a Think Fremont Community Card E-Card today! For more information or to participate as a Downtown Fremont Inc. member in the program, please contact the Downtown Fremont Inc.
