In just a few years, the Canal Walk has become one of the most popular destinations in downtown Greenville. The beautiful brick paved walkways are lined with restaurants, shops and other businesses that are ready to serve you. There’s something for everyone here. The best part? The businesses all accept the same gift card! Whether you’re looking for a casual meal or an upscale experience (or anything in between), your Canal Walk gift card will let you spend money exactly where you want it. Here’s how you can use it anywhere on the canal walk:
Can I Use My Canal Walk Gift Card Anywhere?
Yes! Your Canal Walk Gift Card can be used anywhere on the canal walk. You can use it to grab coffee, go out to eat or treat yourself to a spa visit. You can even use it to pay for parking! What you can’t do is use it at another company’s store unless that company is a part of the EGift network (more on that below). But, as you can see in the list above, most of the biggest businesses on the canal walk are part of the network. That said, if you get a gift card for a specific business, you will want to verify that business is part of the EGift network before you plan your spending. For example, if you pick up a gift card from Stono River Brewing Company, you can only use it at that business.
