    1. Hi Kara, we sell Uptown Dollars, they are like a gift card which can be used in most restaurants & businesses in the Uptown Core. So Funny that you walked into the office while I was typing this! So nice to meet you!

  1. What if you’re from out of town and would like to buy a gift card for someone? Is there an option for someone who can’t walk in?

    1. Hi Adam, we accept Visa & Master Card over the phone. You can arrange for someone to pick up. We have only $180 left in $10 denominations. You can reach me at 506-633-9797 until 4 today, and the dollars should be picked up before 5 today, otherwise if it’s a gift they will not get in until 2020.
      Our hours of operation are
      Mon-Fri 9am – 5pm
      Cheers! Deborah

  2. The dollarstore plus in Brunswick square is rejecting the use of any uptown dollars certificates which I find highly rude
