£20 ShopLocal Voucher for every household in the borough
Hounslow Council is encouraging residents to shop local and support local businesses by launching a brand-new ShopLocal Voucher initiative.
Every household in the borough is being offered a free £20 e-voucher to spend with participating local businesses to help them recover from the pandemic.
The ShopLocal voucher will be an opportunity for businesses to raise their profile by inspiring residents to explore some of the boroughs hidden business gems, developing new customer bases, and boosting more spend locally in the future.
Over 400 businesses have already signed-up to the initiative which sees them get free promotion from the Council and inclusion on the interactive map which residents use to establish where they can spend the voucher. Local businesses include cafes, cinemas, restaurants, health and wellbeing organisations, laundrettes plus many more. Participating businesses can be located on an interactive map so you can easily find where to spend the voucher.
