Pleasureland is the latest business to sign up to a gift card scheme launched by Southport BID.
So far, more than 70 local retailers, restaurants, cafes, bars and leisure venues have signed up to accept the brand-new Southport Gift Card, with more added each week.
The card can be spent in high street favourites such as M&S, The Entertainer, Flannels and Sports Direct plus dozens of popular independent favourites such as Volare, Reputation, Tap & Bottles and The Cheshire Lines.
Southport BID launched the initiative in order to encourage more people to spend money locally and help businesses recover from the coronavirus lockdown.
Looking forward to Pleasureland’s Winter Season, boss Norman Wallis, said: “ Our business is all about providing an environment where families can come and have fun and the measures we have put in place here over Summer have worked really well.
“We are now concentrating on delivering a series of special occasions that will provide spectacular but safe family entertainment in the run-up to Christmas.”
Southport BID chief executive Rachel Fitzgerald added: “The gift card is a fantastic way to keep spend right at the heart of the local economy. Our local businesses keep the town centre vibrant and a great place to live, work and shop and this another excellent way to support them.
“I am absolutely delighted that so many retailers, venues, cafes, restaurants and other service businesses have signed up and see the value of the Southport Gift Card.”
