‘Shop Local – Win Big!’ is a campaign to try and get people back into Huddersfield Town Centre. To spend locally again and support local businesses in a safe and secure way.
Huddersfield BID has funded the campaign. It will run between 3rd to 31st May 2021. It will reward customers for spending in Huddersfield local businesses.
People can claim virtual stamps at all participating businesses by scanning QR codes on the ‘Loyal Free’ app. The more stamps people scan throughout the town centre, the more chances they have of winning a reward. You could win many vouchers from £10 to £50 to be re-spent within the town centre.
BID Manager Matthew Chapman comments: “During the numerous lockdowns, one of the consistent messages we received from businesses was that they wanted more town centre dedicated competitions and promotions.
“We’re really confident that, with engagement and support from the Huddersfield business community, the Shop Local – WIN Big campaign will bring just that and more and I really look forward to many organizations getting involved”.
The ‘Shop Local – Win Big’ campaign will encourage many people local people involved. Hopefully, seeing others scan the ‘LoyalFree’ codes. will pique people’s curiosity and get more local people to support Huddersfield’s local businesses.
Personally, I feel that this will be an excellent way of getting people back into Huddersfield and will help the town centre recover from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
