Scotland Loves Local is a national campaign designed to encourage all those who live in Scotland to think local first and support their local town centres and high streets safely and in line with public health guidelines.
The outbreak of coronavirus has caused significant challenges for our town centres, high streets and local businesses. They have lost out on vital trade because they had to close to keep us safe. Many of them have gone to enormous lengths to support the most vulnerable people in our communities.
As Scotland eases lockdown restrictions and moves into recovery, now is the time to support them to help them get back on their feet. However, we know coronavirus is still a significant risk to local communities and so it is important that people continue to follow the public health advice and take care.
The campaign is backed by a range of partners, including the Scottish Government, the Federation of Small Businesses and the Scottish Grocers Federation.
The Scotland Loves Local Gift Card is the new innovative way of keeping spend local for longer in every community and region across Scotland.
