A "Participating Business" is a business located in the City of Monterey Park that has agreed to participate in the Monterey Park Rewards Program. By doing so, the business enables customers to earn MPK Points when they shop at their business.
Participating Businesses will benefit from citywide marketing to encourage residents to shop local and being part of a small business customer loyalty program that increases foot traffic to your business and business districts.
