Merthyr Gift Card launched in time for Christmas

A unique Merthyr Tydfil town centre gift card has been launched by The Big Heart of Merthyr Tydfil Business Improvement District (BID).


Welcome at more than 35 retailers, restaurants, leisure and entertainment venues, it is an ideal present for friends, family and colleagues at Christmas, especially if you're not sure what to buy them.


With the choice to purchase the gift card in values of anything from £5 to £500, the Merthyr Gift Card means that you can give the gift that suits you.


Gift Cards can be purchased easily and quickly online via a dedicated website - – where recipients can also find out which businesses the card can be spent in.


A broad range of national and independent town centre businesses are already signed up to the gift card and lucky recipients need not redeem the full value in one go. Instead they can spread their spend by using it on a delicious meal, a day out, something for the house, a pampering session, jewellery, clothing and much, much more.


Carl Mason, Business Manager at Barclays and chair of the BID said, “We are delighted to be launching the Merthyr Gift Card and we think it’ll make a very popular Christmas present. It’s ideal, enabling recipients to choose the gifts that suit them and that they will truly enjoy. At the same time they’ll be keeping money in the Merthyr Tydfil community and supporting the town centre shops.”


He added, “I would also ask larger companies to use the gift card to reward excellence, celebrate milestones and honour long-service achievements. It’s a fabulous way to show their support for both Merthyr Tydfil and their staff and colleagues.”


The Merthyr Gift Card will be available year round and, as well as Christmas time, will make an ideal gift for birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s and Father’s Day and on lots of other occasions.


Stickers will be displayed in the windows of businesses accepting the card and the full list is available on the website.
