Downtown Employee Discount Card

Working at a business in Downtown Ithaca has its rewards!  Downtown businesses offer discounts and savings inside shops and restaurants in the district, for downtown employees with your Downtown Employee Discount Card.

(Need to pick up your card? Visit the Downtown Ithaca Alliance office inside Center Ithaca during business hours.)

To say Thank You for being a part of our Downtown Ithaca community, participating businesses offer discounts all year long (July 2019-July 2020) to those who work for businesses within the Business Improvement District.
