Love Local Day takes place on 14th February 2021 and is the first in a series of activities and events planned to help local businesses and communities in these challenging times.
ShopAppy wants to help the 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 and have worked harder than ever before for their communities in the last ten months
Valentine’s Day is traditionally a time when we look for that unique card, gift, or somewhere to go on a date and often the local places we have nearby can give us all the advice, inspiration and solutions we need.
It is amazing how unloved our local businesses can often feel. The power is in your hands to change that. Just nominate your favourite business and encourage your neighbours and community to do the same . We will select the winning nomination and send them a special gift! It takes 2 minutes to create a bit of happiness, so just nominate here
You can make your high street or market the first stop when choosing a unique Valentine’s card or gift. You can order a meal from your local restaurant or book a treat or local event for when lockdown eases so you both have something to look forward to! Gifts with more thought are locally bought.
If you appreciate your local shops and businesses get on social media and tell all your friends to love local on 14th February. Remember to use the hashtag #LoveLocalDay and the name of your town/city too. But most of all, spend with local businesses near you – that will make the biggest difference to them on this special day and every day.
