Lots of valuable prizes, and -
Hang on. We'll come back to the prizes in a mo. First, may we say a few words about why shopping locally is such a good idea?
Less travel = more money in your pocket + less pollution + better health.
Using local businesses = fewer closed and shuttered shops = more money in the local economy = a thriving community.
In short, everyone wins. It's obvious, and you probably know all this, in theory at least. OK, back to those prizes...
Our local business association has launched its 2022 loyalty card promotion early, giving you almost seven weeks to collect your six stamps. You can pick up a loyalty card at any participating local business - which is most of them - or at Richmond Information Centre in the Market Hall. Just present the card at a participating business when you shop there, and collect a stamp. When you've got six stamps from six different businesses, your card can go into a draw to win one of 22 really worthwhile prizes. These include a £150 wine hamper, £100 for spending locally, vouchers for fashion, for Sunday lunch, for nursery plants, and much more.
Shop local, shop Richmond, and everyone wins.
