Love Local This Valentine’s Day
Feb 6, 2020
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time of year to give a big cwtch to all the small and independent businesses in our City Centre, so the Big Heart of Swansea is encouraging everyone to #LoveLocal on 14th February.
For every £1 spent locally, 63p goes back into the local economy, helping to keep our City Centres vibrant and buoyant. So, we think it would be great if we all showed some love for local firms when we buy flowers, chocolates, cinema or event tickets, meals out, or beauty treats for our loved one.
If you’ve been shopping in the City Centre recently, you’ll have seen Swansea BID and the Big Heart’s window stickers dotted around small and independent businesses, saying a big thank you to yourself and other visitors who are spending with local businesses.
We’re so very lucky to have so many wonderful small businesses in Swansea, from the City Centre’s hair and beauty salons, and fashion outlets, to its entertainment venues and food and drink spots. Valentine’s Day is an important calendar date for most of our City Centre businesses, and there are a host of experiences to be had in Swansea whilst supporting independents; there are lively nightlife spots, exceptional restaurants, cinemas, galleries, theatres and venues for you to enjoy with your loved one. And, of course there are any number of places to buy unique gifts and tokens of affection.
Why not follow the #LoveLocal campaign on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram platforms to keep up to date with news of your favourite businesses’ Valentine’s goods, services and promotions? And if you’re heading into the City Centre, don’t forget our fantastic new parking offer in St David’s multi-story car park, where it’s just £1 for three hours! As always, it’s FREE to park every Sunday at all City Centre Council car parks.
