Gift cards offered to shoppers in the city
A new promotion is launched by Musselburgh Business Partnership on Saturday January 29th.
Those who spend £20 at any of the participating Musselburgh retailers will be rewarded with a £5 East Lothian gift card as a thank you.
The vouchers will be valid to be spent in February or March at any of the Musselburgh businesses enrolled in the gift card program.
The program comes on the heels of the launch of a community initiative to help promote the city’s businesses, attractions and events.
A new website and Facebook page to showcase the business, operating under the banner ‘Love Musselburgh – Shop, Eat, Live’, has been created.
Sharon Brown, chair of Musselburgh Business Partnership and owner of Blueberry Gifts on High Street, confirmed that Love Musselburgh was a project set up to support local businesses during the difficult times of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Funding for the project was secured through the Musselburgh Area Partnership, which has been “very supportive” of local businesses and charities during the coronavirus crisis, she added.
Local businesses interested in joining the business partnership should email [email protected] for more information.
