How do I Process DIA Gift Certificates

Downtown Owen Sound Gift Certificates can be redeemed for merchandise and services by shoppers at all participating merchants, businesses, and professionals in Downtown Owen Sound*.   (* within Owen Sound Downtown Improvement Area boundaries as noted below)

The process is simple:

  1. Before you accept the certificate, make sure it has been signed by the DIA.
  2. Fill in your full store name in the “Store Name” section.
  3. After the purchase, the customer is to receive any change due from the redeemed gift certificate.
  4. The gift certificate works just like a cheque and can be redeemed at your financial institution.
