Hello from the new team here at Love Loughborough. We will be sending you monthly updates  to keep you informed on current and up and coming Love Loughborough BID news. Please also follow us on Facebook and Twitter for daily updates and look out for our news posts on the Loveloughborough website.

NEW LOYALTY APP
We are looking to launch an exiting new digital loyalty app which will promote local businesses through offers and rewards, building on the existing Love Loughborough Loyalty Card. The App will enable us to track customer behaviour and provide you with valuable insights and analytics. We are hoping to form a partnership soon with Loyalfree to offer BID businesses a free subscription to the scheme. Watch this space !
If you would like to know more at this stage please contact Lisa@loveloughborough.co.uk 

GIFT CARD
We are in discussions to explore the concept of a Loughborough Gift Card, which we feel may be particularly popular as gifts from parents to students. Would your business like to accept the Love Loughborough Gift Card as payment in your shop ? Please contact us for further details.
