Aberdeen Gift Card businesses

Posted 12th Dec 2020

Last month we launched the Aberdeen Gift Card to the city centre after partnering with Aberdeen Inspired.

With over 130 businesses in the city and more than 60 of our retailers accepting the gift card it makes the perfect gift, so we want to introduce you to some of the businesses taking part!

You can purchase the gift card at the information desk on the upper mall of Bon Accord.

John Lewis and Partners

With everything from electronics to clothing, John Lewis at Bon Accord makes a great addition to the Aberdeen gift card.

Head of branch Jamie Wishart said: "The Aberdeen Gift Card is a tremendous collaboration with Aberdeen Inspired and other local businesses that we are delighted to be part of. The Aberdeen Gift Card will support city centre businesses to grow and adapt to the ever-changing retail landscape, as well as encouraging the public to get behind our city centre and support it.”
