Cleveland Independents Gift Certificate Sale Tomorrow




Important reminder that Cleveland Independents ( will hold its quarterly gift certificate sale tomorrow, January 20. The time is not announced to prevent the website from crashing, which it has done multiple times in the past.

The organization posts gift certificates on its website from over 90 locally owned, independent restaurants in two denominations: $50 certificates that sell for $35, and $25 certificates that sell for $17.50.

Many of the more popular restaurant certificates sell out within five minutes, says Cleveland Independents' Myra Orenstein.

“We’re so incredibly fortunate that our customers are invested in our restaurants and our organization,” says Cleveland Independents’ President and Fire Food & Drink owner Douglas Katz. “There’s an excitement and a loyalty about independent restaurants in northeast Ohio that truly has become contagious.”
