Buyatab Online, a leading international provider of eGift Cards, is pleased to announce that Calgary Co-op has launched their online and mobile Gift Card program and is accepting eGift cards at all of their wine, spirits and beer locations.
“Providing our members with a simple and elegant way to send a digital gift card was a priority for us,” said Jeff Ambrose, VP, Petroleum, Co-op Wine Spirits Beer, Home Health Care, Travel and Business Development. “With a digital gift card, our members can enjoy the convenience of shopping from home, or right from a mobile phone. And with digital gift cards available in every denomination from $25 – $1,000, it’s a gift offering that truly caters to every level.”
“Calgary Co-op is a leader in the grocer and Liquor space in Alberta. Their investment with eGift technology makes them an early adopter in a industry not known for its progressiveness” Said Vohara Gunaratna Director of Sales at Buyatab. “We had a great experience working with their team over a short time window to get their program up and running for the holidays”.
