We’ll Pay For Your Uber & Lyft Rides

Show of Hands makes it easy to shop in Cherry Creek North by offering to pay for shoppers’ UBER and Lyft rides

Denver, Colorado: Heavy construction in Cherry Creek North has made it difficult for holiday shoppers hunting for the perfect gift to find parking. While many of the small businesses are choking from the development dust, one creative owner is taking matters into her own hands by offering to pay customers to use UBER or Lyft to visit her gift shop.

For years, Coloradans searching for unique gifts and an alternative to the big box retailers have visited the independently owned shops located in Cherry Creek North. However, Katie Friedland, the owner of Show of Hands, an Art Gallery and Gift Shop that has called Cherry Creek North home for over 32 years has seen sales decline this year as shoppers steer clear of the area due to construction. According to Friedland, the story is the same at many of the small businesses that make up over 70% of the district’s retail stores.

“While many people love finding one-of-kind-gifts at the stores in Cherry Creek, because streets are closed and they can’t find parking, they are not visiting our store,” said Friedland. “I’m a single mom and small business owner. While we support progress, the holiday season is critical to me and many of the retail stores in the area. After hearing complaints from customers and calculating current sales numbers, I realized we needed to get creative here. I thought, if parking is the issue, then let’s pay for people to take an UBER or Lyft ride into the area to shop. Problem solved.”

Even though Show of Hands has four of its own parking spots, to help save the holidays for all the small businesses in Cherry Creek North, Show of Hands will pay anyone that presents a receipt for an UBER or Lyft ride into the area and spends $100 at the store, $20 cash. Customers will receive $40 cash if they spend $200 or more.
