The Crieff Card is here and will be launched by the end of May
What is it?
The Crieff Card is designed to help retain spend in Crieff and is aimed at all local businesses. Research has shown that around 70p in every pound spent locally stays within the local economy, this in turn benefits the whole community.
The Crieff Card can be used in any participating business for all kinds of different things. It could be used to pay for a meal for 2, a haircut or beauty treatment, a car valet, a steak pie or a bottle of wine. The only real limit to how it can be used is defined by the number and variety of businesses who chose to accept it as payment. In effect, the card serves as a local currency for use within Crieff.
The Perfect Gift
Over 40% of all gifts given in the UK are unwanted and end up being thrown out or given away, with more than £850 million spent on unwanted Christmas gifts alone. The Crieff Card gives the recipient the freedom to choose where they want to spend their present and on what, making it the perfect gift.
