Community Encouraged to Support Local Businesses Through City of Lafayette’s E - Card Program
To support local brick - and - mortar businesses in Lafayette that have experienced economic uncertainty as a result of the pandemic , the City is continuing to offer the Shop Local Lafayette eCard Program .
“When you shop local , you are supporting local business owners and helping to keep the Lafayette business community unique , helping local workers keep their jobs , and also helping the overall community because a ......portion of the sales tax collected on purchases comes back to our community to pay for police , safety , road repairs and such , ” explained Administrative Services Director , Tracy Robinson , who oversees economic development for the City of Lafayette .
The eCard program is in partnership with Yiftee and is offered at no cost to participating businesses . For a limited time , anyone who purchases a Shop Local Lafayette eCard will receive double the value to spend at participating businesses in Lafayette . The City hopes this incentive will encourage customers to shop , dine or receive services in Lafayette , while generating more sales for local businesses . The City’s “Twice as Nice” bonus card offer is only available for a limited time , and there is a limit of two bonus cards per purchaser . For full details and to purchase eCards , visit
