Support local Whistler businesses with the Pan Pacific Whistler’s Local Love Passport until the end of June for a chance to win a getaway once the travel restrictions are lifted!
Earlier this month, Pan Pacific Whistler launched their Local Love Passport in an effort to give back to the Whistler community amidst the travel ban. The Local Love Passport is a partnership with 15 local businesses where participants can collect ‘stamps’ every time they make a purchase (online or in-person for locals) to receive perks.
If 5/15 stamps are earned, you save 25% off your next stay. With 10/15 stamps, you save 30% off the next stay, a $100 Visa gift card, and are entered to win a Grand Prize stay at the Pan Pacific once the travel restrictions are lifted.
Participating local businesses include, The Adventure Group, The Raven Room, Forecast Coffee, Armchair Books, WOW Treats, Coast Mountain Beer, Tripadvisor Review, 3 Singing Birds, Fuji Market, Audain Art Museum, Scandinave Spa, Ed’s BReD, Whistler Animal Shelter, and Whistler Day Spa.
Zoe Martin, Pan Pacific Whistler’s Director of Revenue, laments at how much the Whistler community and smaller businesses have suffered since the mountain closed and the travel restrictions were put in place. For her, the Local Love Passport was an opportunity to support and give visibility to these local businesses whom many share a close connection to. For instance, Wow Pet Treats, an organic, natural and locally sourced dog-food company out of Pemberton that is a favourite for her as a dog-owner.
The Pan Pacific Whistler Local Love Passport makes it possible for out-of-towners who love Whistler to continue supporting local businesses online while respecting the restrictions and for locals to discover some gems in their own backyard. With vaccination numbers up and case counts getting smaller by the day, there’s hope for locals and tourists alike to support these fantastic local businesses in person this summer. But until then, the Local Love Passport is a great way for everyone to participate in a fun, scavenger-hunt of local favourites to pass the time.
