Happy #Lovelocalday with ShopAppy on 14th February


Date: Fri 14 Feb

Venue(s): UK

To celebrate our local high streets, markets and dedicated businesses who work hard to source and supply convenience with fresh produce, gifts and services on our doorstep Bira are supporting ShopAppy to spread the love to them this Valentine’s Day.

We feel they should have the recognition they deserve – so we are claiming Valentine’s Day as the day for us all to appreciate local businesses and where we live and work!

How can you join in? You can join in by:

Shopping local online for your loved one this Valentine’s Day. You can make your high street or market the first stop when choosing a unique Valentine’s card or gift. You can take your special person for a meal at a local restaurant or book a treat such as a manicure, facial or massage.

Helping us raise awareness by sharing the local love on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Look out for our competition on Facebook to win £50 ShopAppy Vouchers – all you have to do is share the post and tag the person you would like to share £50 ShopAppy vouchers with. Winners will be chosen at random on #lovelocalday 14th February.

Telling your favourite shop or business how much you love them. Just take a photo of your favourite business, business owner or shopkeeper and share it on our Facebook, Instagram or Twitter page with hashtag #lovelocalday. – We will select a shop/shopkeeper at random from the pictures uploaded and send them a bunch of flowers from a local independent florist of course!

Doing their bit

Along with giving away lovely prizes, ShopAppy will be surprising some of their most loved shop owners with Valentine cards and messages.

ShopAppy will be promoting #lovelocalday on social media and in the media and we’re getting the businesses involved as well by providing posters and cards to help them share how much they love their customers.

Spread the love. If you appreciate your local shops and businesses get on social media and tell all your friends to love local on 14th February by using #lovelocalday but most of all, get out there and support local businesses near you.
