Chichester BID is excited to announce the launch of a new free digital app to promote city centre businesses to visitors and shoppers, in partnership with LoyalFree, a multiaward-winning platform used for finding local deals, events and trails.
The Business Improvement District is encouraging city centre businesses to take advantage of the new scheme aimed at boosting trade and helping them bounce back following the challenges of the Covid-19 lockdown.
The app will be an excellent resource for shoppers and visitors to the city centre, highlighting that Chichester is ‘open for business’.
The LoyalFree app is already being successfully used across 21 towns and cities to support high streets. With more than 47,000 users, the app provides free advertising for local businesses to promote their offers and events, run loyalty stamp schemes and sell products or vouchers.
The app also hosts various trails to encourage visitors and residents to discover all parts of the city centre.
Projects co-ordinator at Chichester BID, Oriana Di Mascio, commented: “We’ve been working hard to find effective and innovative ways to support city centre businesses that have been dramatically impacted by Covid-19. The LoyalFree app scheme has already been successful in towns and cities across the country and we are urging BID Levy Payers to take advantage of this free publicity platform to share offers, vouchers and much more as they
try to bounce back after lockdown.
“We plan to launch the app in the next few weeks and hope members of the public find it a useful resource for discovering all the latest city centre offers and promotions as well as event listings, tourism and parking information and city trails.”
Sophie Tarrant of Katie Loxton, commented: “The app is a fantastic way to advertise the array of shops our city has to offer and to run offers exclusive to app users.”
To celebrate the launch of the app, the BID is giving away three Chichester Gift Cards worth £100 each. Redeemable in over 140 Chichester stores, to be in with a chance of winning you simply have to download the app and click on the competition button to be entered into a prize draw.
