Adam Van De Water, Director of the City of Livermore’s Office of Innovation and Economic Development, is excited about the program. “Gift Livermore helps our small businesses and our residents exactly when they need it most. By shopping locally we invest in what makes Livermore unique and we keep those dollars recirculating in the local economy where they generate more City funding. This is truly a win-win-win.
“We really appreciate Livermore Downtown Inc. suggesting this program to the City.” Stated Mayor Bob Woerner. “ I hope you all enthusiastically support this at any level you can, enjoying and supporting our locally owned businesses.”
Mike, who owns First Street Wine Company with wife Linda, is participating in the Gift Livermore Program. “This is a clever opportunity, which greatly benefits small Livermore business owners and the public. It incentifies people to shop locally and be rewarded!”
