MVP stands for Merchant Validation Program
WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT – Downtown businesses will pay your parking for doing business with them!
The Merchant Validation Program (MVP) is a program designed to give you one more reason to visit the many great downtown businesses. Why? Because they’ll pay your parking! The idea is that when you make a purchase at participating businesses, you may be able to show your parking receipt and get reimbursed for the amount you paid.
HOW IT WORKS – Participating downtown businesses set their own criteria for how they’ll validate your parking – it could be ‘purchase lunch for two and get reimbursed $4’, ‘minimum purchase of $20 to get reimbursed $4’ or ‘come in for your dental appointment & get reimbursed’
You will be required to submit your parking receipt for re-imbursement.
