About the Scotland Loves Local Gift Card
The Scotland Loves Local Gift Card is the innovative new way of keeping spend local for longer in every community and region across Scotland.
By ensuring every region in Scotland signs up to the programme, Scotland’s Towns Partnership and our gift card operators, Miconex, want to give local people another means to support the businesses closest to them.
We believe that the gift card will encourage consumers to think local first – supporting the businesses around them, protecting local jobs and making communities stronger. In short, the Scotland Loves Local Gift Card is a present for the whole community, allowing it to prosper.
As businesses emerge from the past year of Covid-19 restrictions and high streets begin to fully reopen and resume trading, the card can benefit local people, local businesses and individual local economies. Local businesses have been there for their communities like never before over the past year, and this scheme allows local people to support them.
Spending through a Scotland Loves Local Gift Card has multiplier effects which go far beyond the point of purchase. Using the card will keep people within their area, supporting many businesses as they buy.
Research shows that two-thirds of money spent in the local economy is then respent locally, further supporting local jobs and making local businesses more sustainable. This multiplier effect is worth millions of pounds to Scotland’s national and regional economies.
