Restaurant gift card program continues long-term

Due to the success of its “Up to Something Local” restaurant gift card program for the 2020 holiday season, the North Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) will continue to sell North Little Rock restaurant gift cards at the North Little Rock Welcome Center at 600 Main Street for the foreseeable future.

“We began the initiative to assist our restaurants at the end of what has been a difficult economic year for the restaurant industry,” said Shannon Harris, Guest Services Manager. “The positive response was overwhelming. Customers appreciated the convenience and the restaurants benefitted without any extra set up on their part.”

Within three weeks of announcing the restaurant gift card program, the North Little Rock Welcome Center sold 70 restaurant gift cards in-store and online for 23 North Little Rock restaurants. The gift cards are $20, and 100% of the sales goes back to the local restaurant.

Participating restaurants include:

Gift cards may be purchased in-store at 600 Main Street, Suite 120 (first floor) Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. or online. The North Little Rock Welcome Center also sells local and Arkansas-made products from apparel to kitchen items, jewelry to bath and body products.
