QC Cash is a digital gift card aimed at supporting Uptown retail & restaurants just in the St. Nick of time.
Launching by Charlotte Center City Partners and several major Uptown businesses, QC Cash is a new digital gift card program which you display on your phone at various Uptown businesses to make your purchases.
Aimed at supporting Uptown’s restaurants, shops, salons and spas, boutiques, hotels, museums, other cultural institutions and more, QC Cash e-gift cards are purchased online here. It works just like a gift card, except that you simply display the QC Cash on your phone, and you can use the QC Cash only at participating businesses. Participating businesses are Uptown, and there are currently over 50 businesses signed up for the QC Cash program, with more joining every day.
There is no fee for businesses to participate and no fee to use the QC Cash, although there is a small transaction fee to buy. It’s a simple way for people and companies to keep local spending local, to strengthen Uptown businesses, and to build community.
“The people who work or live in Uptown know just how important these small businesses are to making this such a thriving neighborhood. We are proud to partner with major employers and residential communities to launch QC Cash to support retailers and restaurants that have felt oversized impacts from the pandemic,” said Michael J. Smith, president and CEO of Charlotte Center City Partners. “We are especially grateful for the leadership of Truist Bank, which was the first major employer Uptown to commit to participating.”
In addition to Truist Bank, Rodgers Builders and Catalyst, an apartment community, have signed on as supporters.
