Very Important Visitor Card:

Gig Harbor, WA – April 24, 2012 -- Are you planning a visit to Gig Harbor’s beautiful historic waterfront? Or do you have guests coming to visit you this summer? Be sure to take advantage of shopping specials available from participating merchants with the new Very Important Visitor card offered by the Gig Harbor Historic Waterfront Association!

When visitors arrive in Gig Harbor they can pick up their free Very Important Visitor (VIV) card at the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center (3125 Judson Street), Maritime Inn, Best Western Wesley Inn or Inn at Gig Harbor. Members of visiting yacht clubs will also be presented a VIV card.

Visitors will receive a welcome letter with a bright yellow VIV card, entitling them to shopping specials from waterfront merchants displaying the yellow VIV poster in their window. Visitors simply show their card to the merchants to learn what their shopping special will be! Thirty waterfront businesses are currently participating in the VIV program. All our merchants and restaurants have a warm welcome and smile awaiting the arrival of our visitors.

For more information about the VIV program or for information about the Gig Harbor Historic Waterfront Association, call 253-514-0071 or contact
