Retailers and businesses in Malmesbury have signed up for the new local Malmesbury Gift Card. At the launch in The Old Bell Hotel on 6 November, the card was warmly welcomed by local businesses who turned out in numbers to support the launch. Over 30 businesses have signed up for what they see as a first-class local initiative and it’s anticipated 50 businesses will join the scheme ahead of the busy Christmas shopping period.
The initiative is aimed at keeping money in the local economy. Gordon MacPherson Town Team spokesperson said, “We are delighted with the support from local shops, businesses and residents. The Malmesbury Gift Card offers a local alternative to spending online, enhances the local retail proposition and offers experiences. It’s not just about buying things; it’s about enjoying the social aspects and experiences of our small and vibrant market town.”
