It ‘pays’ to be a local!

You can’t blame some of our locally-sited city businesses for banding together to produce a bonus scheme to attract more local support during hard times on the High Street.

The Bath BID has announced a new scheme this month aimed at the people that work and live in the city.

It’s called B-LOCAL and designed specifically for the community of Bath. Residents of Bath qualify for a Discovery Card to enjoy free entry to museums and discounts, but these food and beverage offers go further by including the many people that commute into Bath for employment.

Some of its members –  fine eating and drinking establishments – have developed special treats and benefits for local people to enjoy mid-week during school term-times. These restaurants, cafés and bars recognise that local people are the backbone of their business and want to find ways to give something extra.

Says the press release: “Each offer is different. There’s lovely breakfast, pizza, coffee, fine dining and drinking options. Look out for a leaflet or have a look at to find out more.

Once you’ve made your selection, pop along with some proof that you live or work in the city (Discovery Card, employee badge, proof of address, etc.) and enjoy the benefits of being a local.

The participating businesses are: Amarone Restaurant, Bath Pizza Co, Century Casino, Chandos Deli, Clayton’s Kitchen, The Gainsborough, Green Park Brasserie, Giraffe, Good Day Café, The Ivy, Koffman’s & Mr. White, Koh, Mokoko, No. 15 Great Pulteney, The Raven, Rosarios Café, Sally Lunn’s, Slug & Lettuce and The Whole Bagel.

Allison Herbert, CEO Bath BID is proud to be launching B-LOCAL;

“What a great range of mouthwatering offers. We are delighted with the response by our food & beverage businesses to this initiative. They really want to provide something special for local people, not just those that live in Bath, but all those that work in the city too.”
