The initiative "Faro. We are All” has already generated, for the economy of Faro, “more than 4 million euros”. The value was revealed on Monday, by the vice president of the Chamber of Faro Paul Santos.

So far, «we have already delivered, in vouchers, more than 300 thousand euros», highlighted Paulo Santos, to journalists, on the sidelines of the inauguration of the "SOS Empresas Office".

According to the mayor, the initiative has been "fairly accepted" by merchants, translating into an "addition to the support and dynamization of local commerce and services".

During the first phase of the campaign, more than 200 coupons were collected that, after a draw, could give the right to vouchers of different amounts (200, 100, 50 and 30 euros).

However, the campaign, which will last until June 30, changed its format at the end of April, and now goes through the offer of vouchers discount to consumers who make their purchases at participating local establishments.

For every 50 euros of purchases in local stores, the customer will be entitled to a discount voucher worth 7,5 euros to be used at any other establishments that are part of the initiative.

To make up the amount of 50 euros, more than one invoice may be presented, but each must have a minimum value of 5 euros.

To receive the vouchers, the customer must present the invoices with their NIF and identification card at the store Faro. We are all, located at Rua do Lethes, nº 42/44, in Faro, from Monday to Friday, from 10:00 am to 18:00 pm, and Saturdays, from 11:00 am to 13:30 pm, until May 31st.

Os vouchers can be used in a purchase, for a minimum amount of 7,50 euros, in any participating establishment, until 30 June.

This campaign is the result of a partnership between the City Council of Faro, the Association of Commerce and Services of the Algarve Region (ACRAL), the Commercial Development Association of the Historic Area of Faro (Associação Comércio da Baixa), the Association of Hotel and Similar Industries of the Algarve (AIHSA) and the Cultural and Activist Association of Baixa de Faro (OCAB), in an articulation that, according to Paulo Santos, «has worked quite well».
