Stamp of Approval for Shopping Loyalty SchemePublished Thursday, 23 October 2014
Shopping in Longridge has taken a retail leap thanks to a loyalty scheme backed by Ribble Valley Borough Council.
When the card has 10 stamps, it is entered into a monthly draw to win a £50 shopping vouchers that can be redeemed against a wide range of goods, from hardware to toys, restaurant meals to clothing.
Carole Hart, chairman of the Longridge Business Group, said: “Every local purchasing decision helps businesses thrive, supports jobs and keeps Longridge the vibrant centre we want it to be.
“I am grateful to the town and borough councils for their support and encouragement, and delighted that the town’s loyal customers are to be rewarded.”
Ribble Valley councillor Rupert Swarbrick added: “The beauty of Longridge Does Shopping is that customers are not restricted to any one business for collecting their stamps or spending the winning vouchers.
“I hope Longridge residents, traders and visitors to the town will get behind the scheme and support local shops.”
So far, 32 businesses have joined Longridge Does Shopping and the first prize draw is expected to take place this month.
