COLORADO SPRINGS — Downtown Partnership launched a free web-based digital application called the Discover Downtown Savings Pass on Thursday, October 1.

“It has coupons and offers from over 70 downtown retailers, restaurants and salons,” said Laurel Prud’homme with the Downtown Partnership of Colorado Springs.

This latest initiative by Downtown Partnership aims at bolstering sales for locally-owned restaurants, boutiques, salons, and service providers. The pass has been in the works since July.

All one has to do is sign up through their online tool, Discover Downtown Pass and present any available offer at participating businesses to redeem and save.        

Restaurants who are taking part in the pass like Jose Maldoon’s said it’s a big help.

“It gets customers in the building and reminds them we are here,” Assistant General Manager Adam Hiles added.

Down the street, shops like Yobel are thinking ahead and say this pass will help them with the upcoming holiday season.

“It retails bread and butter,” Manager of Yobel Gwendolyn Devine said. “It’s what gets us through the year.”

The pass is expected to roll out holiday savings as the season of giving draws closer. So far hundreds of people have signed up and taken advantage of the pass.
