SHOP 2 SKATE
Forget all the reward and loyalty schemes of the past, this Winter In The City, all you need is Lancaster BID’s Shop 2 Skate scheme.
The Lancaster Business Improvement District (BID) have teamed up with Lancaster On Ice, to offer you the chance to earn a FREE pair of ice skating tickets, by shopping locally this festive season.
For every £10 you spend in participating businesses (from Sunday – Thursday) you will receive a ‘Shop 2 Skate’ sticker. Once you’ve completed your flyer, and have obtained all 8 stickers, you can exchange the completed flyer for a FREE pair of ice skating tickets at the Lancaster On Ice Box Office in Dalton Square.
There are 70+ businesses participating in Shop 2 Skate. They are easily identifiable by their A3 posters in shop windows, or you can visit the Lancaster BID website, to see a full list. Participating businesses range from high fashion retailers to florists and jewellers to art galleries and cafes to butchers- perfect for your Christmas shopping!
Although Lancaster BID have nearly 800 tickets available, they are expecting them to be snapped up quickly by savvy shoppers, so make sure you take your completed flyer to the Box Office as soon as possible after completing it. Once tickets have run out, Lancaster On Ice will honour a 10% discount for anyone with a completed Shop 2 Skate flyer.
Lancaster BID Manager, Rachael Wilkinson, said: “We wanted to support Lancaster On Ice, as it’s such an important asset for the city centre. The potential economic benefit of the ice rink, bringing visitors from further afield to experience and shop in Lancaster this Christmas, has phenomenal potential. We wanted to ensure that businesses could capitalise on the predicted increased footfall that the ice rink could bring, and that’s how Shop 2 Skate was born. It’s important for businesses to be rewarded for their contributions to the city, and remind people to shop locally over the festive period, as it’s such a crucial time for businesses.”
So make sure you shop local this Christmas, and support the businesses of Lancaster, and you might as well earn some FREE ice skating tickets whilst you do!
