A gift voucher unique to Knutsford is launching just in time for Christmas.
The Knutsford Voucher is now available to purchase from the Town Council website and (after lockdown) in person in the Council Offices on Toft Road. Initially the vouchers will be in £5 and £10 dominations and will be able to be redeemed in over 50 local shops.
The aim of the scheme is to keep spend local and support the local economy.
Sandra Curties, Knutsford Town Council Town Centre and Marketing Officer, said, “We have kept the initial launch simple – low denominations for spread of spend and we’ve had a great response from local shops. There are too many to mention here but the vouchers can be redeemed for everyday goods such as meat and vegetables to flowers, soft furnishings, bikes, and gifts – there really is something for everyone. Once the voucher is redeemed, we pay the shop back in full. It is a great way of ring fencing local spend.”
The vouchers will be available for one year from date of purchase, have been designed by local marketing agency 438 Marketing and have security features to disable fraud. Full terms and conditions will be on Knutsford Town Council’s website along with a full list of participating retailers. They make great gifts all year round and an excellent incentive for existing staff or a welcome to new starters. Chris Eversfield from Serenity Designs said, “We are really excited about this new voucher scheme. It is a great initiative from Knutsford Town Council – enabling local people to spend money in local shops”
If any Knutsford based business is interested in the scheme, they should get in touch with Sandra Curties on 01565 653929. Please note only Knutsford based shops (not surrounding villages) can take the vouchers. If successful, higher denominations will be introduced and longer term a digital option may be developed.
