If you’re looking for a last minute gift for somebody who lives in Evanston or visits here often, Downtown Evanston figures it’s got the perfect solution for you.
The marketing and management organization for the downtown business district is selling gift cards in denominations from $5 to $500 that are honored by scores of downtown merchants.
You could pick one up today, Saturday, until 3 p.m. at the Downtown Evanston office at 820 Davis Street, Suite 151, or until 1:30 p.m. at the First Bank & Trust office at 820 Davis St.
And both locations will also be selling the cards on Monday, Christmas Eve, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Downtown Evanston office and from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at First Bank & Trust.
