The Kent Downtown Partnership this week announced that it is launching a new ‘Penguin Savings Card,’ which will offer significant discounts to card holders visiting participating historic downtown Kent merchants.

“The program is a result of an ongoing partnership between downtown merchants and the Kent Downtown Partnership,” said Gaila Gutierrez, Executive Director of the KDP. “The card is anticipated to bring value to existing customers as well as introduce and encourage those who aren’t familiar with some of the downtown businesses to visit and support small business. We’re really excited to roll this program out in conjunction with the 10th Anniversary of Shop Small Business Saturday on November 30th.”

Over 30 businesses are currently participating with more joining each day. The card is available to purchase for just $25; proceeds benefit the Kent Downtown Partnership to support this program and future events and programs.

The card is valid for a 12 month period and renewable annually. Participating merchants and details can be found at; you can also purchase one here, or email [email protected] or 253-813-6976.

The Kent Downtown Partnership is an American Express® Small Business Neighborhood Champion, who promotes and supports Small Business Saturday which takes place on Nov. 30. No matter what your shopping journey is, the partnership encourages shoppers to support Shop Small® and the impact they have on communities.
