Your invitation to join our Love Local Day campaign

We are excited to announce that our hugely successful Love Local Day campaign is back and we would love you to be a part of it this year.

ShopAppy has run the Love Local Day campaign annually since 2017 to celebrate and appreciate all local businesses, as voted for by their customers.  Last year’s campaign drove over 4000 business nominations with 20 best-loved local businesses selected, driving significant local and national coverage for businesses and towns across the UK.  With your help and support let’s amplify ShopAppy’s Love Local Day, we can make the 2023 campaign the best yet, especially for your local businesses. 

Campaign Detail:

  • The campaign launched on 17th January 2023 and will run through to 20th February 2023. The nominations will close on Love Local Day – 14th February 2023 – and a panel of judges will select the top 20 local businesses who will be announced and all receive a prize from ShopAppy on 20th February. Nominations are open for all businesses whether they are ShopAppy members or not so let’s make sure your businesses are nominated this year.
  • A key part of the campaign is asking residents and visitors to nominate their most loved local businesses. All nominated businesses will be told they have been nominated and comments will be shared on social media throughout the campaign, which is a great boost for businesses in your areas. A selection of businesses will also receive a thank you gift from ShopAppy.

Get involved:

  • Drive nominations in your area – Share this link with your local residents and businesses in your areas and encourage them to nominate their most loved businesses, this can be done on all your social media channels, local newsletters and databases.
