Give the Gift of Supporting Local Business

The City of Manassas is proud to announce the HEART BEAT Gift Card, a community-based digital gift card that makes it easy to support local businesses. Purchase a HEART BEAT Gift Card and use it at some of your favorite local places in the city. The list of merchants is growing, but here are some participating businesses you can support right now:

  • Shining Sol Candle Company
  • Popcorn Monkey
  • Sinistral Brewing Company
  • The Things I Love, LLC

With this digital gift card, you have the ability to 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 their favorite participating merchants in the city—or mix it up and spend flexibly at multiple locations. All-digital and always available on your phone, the HEART BEAT Gift Card is great for birthdays, holidays, teachers, employees, coaches, or just to show kindness to a friend.

When you support local business, more money circulates through the community which contributes to economic growth and low unemployment. What’s fascinating is studies show that local independent retailers recirculate 47% of their revenue back into the community, while only 14% of national chains’ revenue stays in the community. Even more dramatic, restaurants recirculate 73% of their revenue back into the community, versus only 30% for national chains. So, it’s a big win for the City of Manassas.

If you’re looking for a way to brighten someone’s day while supporting local businesses in the City of Manassas, send a HEART BEAT Gift Card. They’ll love it!
