Downtown Dollars

A Downtown Dollars card has a cash value that will be accepted at local businesses in St. Albans.  A simple, yet powerful, gift idea that was developed at the beginning of COVID-19 to remind the public that small businesses are still serving us all here in Downtown St. Albans.  And the program still lives on today!  See below for the list of participating businesses and some FAQs.
