The COVID-19 pandemic has absolutely decimated tourism across the globe. The effect on local businesses has already been profound and one of the best way you can show your support is to purchase gift cards.

Not only do our festivals and events bring in numerous tourists to our region, many locals also tell us they provide a great source of pride when showcasing our city to others. “You make the city fun” is something we’ve been told many times.

However, with social distancing key to slowing the spread of the virus, restrictions in place banning larger gatherings, things are hurting for many in the restaurant, beverage and tourism industries, including WindsorEats.

Large scale cancellations and refunds would have long-term affects including the cancellation of larger scale events in the future even after everything clears.

To help soften the blow as much as we can and to keep even a small resemblance of cash flow continuing, we’re offering those wanting to support us a 20% discount on gift cards. This means you get to support a local business while treating yourself to a lovely experience when things settle down.

All you need to do is purchase a gift card in the amount you choose and use the SUPPORTLOCAL promo code to receive the discount.

We are doing everything necessary to ensure protocols are being followed and ask for your patience as we chart out a plan of action. For those that have purchased tickets, we kindly request that you do not flood us with refund requests while we work to put a solid plan in place.

As an added bonus, those who purchase a gift card will get one month of free online fitness training with Joe from Stay Fit Anywhere. You may recognize him from our our Instagram stories.

To those that purchased a ticket to a future event in these past few days, we cannot thank you enough! You’re support is what is keeping us going!
