St. Cloud Main Street is launching Cloud Cash with help from the Osceola County Economic Development Grant. This program aims to bring $10,000 worth of spending money to participating Downtown St. Cloud merchants. The full list of participating businesses can be found on the St. Cloud Main Street website and social media pages.
With this program, individuals can purchase a $10 voucher on our website for just $5 to spend downtown. Vouchers will be mailed to customers or they can choose to come to pick them up in their office after purchase.
The purpose behind the program is to encourage purchases at our downtown businesses by providing a discount directly to the consumer without impacting the St. Cloud merchant’s bottom line. By utilizing a grant to cover the additional $5 value on the voucher, merchants can accept the vouchers just like cash and earn the full $10 on each purchase. Ultimately, Main Street in St. Cloud is hoping that the incentive of obtaining a voucher for 50% off the face value will help to bring new customers downtown. And, of course, attract new visitors to the downtown area.
The Cloud Cash program will run from February 27, 2021, until July 31, 2021. Vouchers will be available for purchase at www.stcloudmainstreet.org until the entirety of the grant has been utilized.
