Kent Downtown Partnership offers Penguin Savings Card

The Kent Downtown Partnership has launched the Penguin Savings Card, a program that offers significant discounts to cardholders visiting participating historic downtown merchants.

“The program is a result of an ongoing partnership between downtown merchants and the Kent Downtown Partnership,” said Gaila Gutierrez, executive director of the Kent Downtown Partnership. “The card is anticipated to bring value to existing customers as well as introduce and encourage those who aren’t familiar with some of the downtown businesses to visit and support small business. We’re really excited to roll this program out in conjunction with the 10th Anniversary of Shop Small Business Saturday on November 30th.”

Over 30 businesses are participating with more joining each day. The card, named after the penguin sculptures standing at the corner of West Meeker Street and Second Avenue, is available for $25. Proceeds benefit the Kent Downtown Partnership to support the card program and future events and programs.

The card is valid for a 12-month period and renewable annually. Participating merchants and details can be found at; email or call 253-813-6976.
