Downtown Dollars

What are Downtown Dollars?

Downtown Dollars are similar to gift certificate – but instead of paying by cash or card, you use these dollars that are accepted at any participating downtown shops, restaurants, and services.

Downtown Dollars are available in denominations of $5, $10, and $20. And there is no expiry date on Downtown Dollars!

  • Downtown Dollars can be used at many Downtown Penticton businesses
  • Downtown Dollars are treated same as cash
  • Feel free to contact the Downtown Penticton Association to verify if a business is in the Downtown jurisdiction, or with any questions

Look for a “Downtown Dollars Accepted Here” decal in store windows when you shop in Downtown Penticton. It’s the perfect way to support our Downtown businesses.

Downtown Dollars can be purchased by phone or in person at the Downtown Penticton Association, 3-212 Main Street, Penticton.
