‘Shop Small to Help Out’ campaign launches to support local communities across the UK
As lockdown measures ease and non-essential shops reopen national discount scheme, My VIP Card, has launched its campaign ‘Shop Small to Help Out’ and vows to promote thousands of local shops and services to its huge network of UK shoppers. As part of the campaign any small businesses can now sign up for free and will benefit from being promoted to a huge national audience of shoppers keen to support local and small business whilst taking advantage of thousands of amazing discounts.
Many Local shops and services have been hugely impacted by lockdown measures over the last 12 months and will also have had to outlay significant costs to get their shops ready to reopen ensuring they are compliant to social distancing rules and restocked after months of closure. This means the next few weeks and months are critical for these businesses that have managed to survive the pandemic so far. The national discount card gives local shoppers access to thousands of discounts with these local businesses and helps them save on average £500 a year while supporting their local high street.
Maddy Alexander-Grout, founder of My VIP Card, added, “I created My VIP Card to help local high street and communities across the UK and these small businesses have never needed your support more. We are urging everyone to download our app and get out and support these amazing local businesses. By bringing them all together on our platform we are allowing them to compete with larger chains, attract a bigger audience and hopefully encourage many shoppers to shop small and benefit from some amazing discounts.”
