2010 loyalty offers in Caterham

Welcome to Caterham 2010

Despite the weather we seem to have brought on, thanks to our pre Christmas snow machines, the town has seen the opening of new facilities and it's business as usual.

Latest shop to join is Papa John's, taking us to 47 shops. They are offering a significant discount of 30% from regular prices to all Shop Smart members, for orders over £15 collected from the shop.

Caterham Pounds
( Ended 31/12/2009)

We issued over 40,000 vouchers worth £1 each, thanks to The Caterham Independent, the County Border News, The Caterham Advertiser and the Caterham Mirror. The idea will return again later this year and local gift vouchers are also planned.

A new section on the web site is a brief listing of all shops with sales or special offers. Please advise if we are missing some.

To all the participating shops

Background information
Shop Smart, shop local was launched in Caterham on August 6th, to reward shoppers and business loyalty. Its proving very popular among residents, shops and local businesses. Membership cards, a web site and town promotions are part of a scheme launched by the Caterham Business Partnership and ABC ( A Better Caterham). Leaflets are available widely in participating shops & both libraries. The campaign is also being well supported by the Caterham Mirror, Advertiser, County Border News, Tandridge Chronicle and other local media, including BBC's Southern Counties Radio recently.

The scheme is backed by the local businesses taking part and supported by grants from Surrey CC, Tandridge DC, Caterham Valley and Caterham on the Hill Parish Councils. At launch there were 31 shops in the scheme and now there are 47. The panel below lists each one. Other recent entrants are: MHP studios in Westway, who donated a prize of a £150 gift certificate to the initial Loyalty trail competition, Barrett's Gun and Sporting goods shop in High St and Queen Elizabeth's foundation in Croydon Rd, who are offering everyone jute QEF bags worth £1.99 for a purchase of £10.

Details of all the latest shops and their offers, together with a local shopping map and other material are in the scheme materials. Several others are in discussions, so watch this space!

The new Caterham web site with this information, including the shops, offers and their locations around the town has been created and can be reached from the banner above. Check the individual shop's pages for details of what they offer. Please note that all information is subject to change, while we add extra shops and of course some offers are for seasonal items. There are now 27 participating shops and town centre businesses in the Valley and 20 on the Hill. Other parts of the town and nearby are welcome too. The scheme is being expanded to include other Caterham businesses. Offers proposed range from straight forward discounts of up to 30%, to free items, promotions, vouchers for monthly draws, special terms and individual loyalty schemes.
