The Newport Now Gift Card – organised and funded by the Newport Now Business Improvement District – can be spent on almost anything, anytime, anywhere in the city centre.

Almost 60 city centre businesses have signed up to accept the card, with shops, restaurants, bars, cafes and theatres in the city centre all involved.  All will benefit from the fact that whenever anyone buys the card, the money will stay in Newport.

Kevin Ward, Manager of Newport Now BID, said: “The card is available at any sum from £5 to £500. Customers can use it in one go or in several visits to different businesses over a number of months”.

The Newport Now Gift Card can be bought online at a dedicated website – – or from Liverton Opticians in Charles Street, the Riverfront Theatre or the Newport Centre.

Stickers are also displayed in the windows of the businesses that accept the card. The card can be used like any debit card and users can check the balance on the card at any time on the website.

The card can be used at the following Friars Walk venues :TGI Fridays, Wagamama, Chiquito, Prezzo, Krispy Kreme, GBK, New Look, New Look Men, Nandos, Muffin Break, Flying Tiger, Las Iguanas, Jack & Jones, Jeffries Fine Jewellers, River Island, Skechers, Zizzi & Schuh.
