Retailers come together for Brechin shop local event

Many of Brechin’s local retailers have come together to encourage customers to shop local this Christmas.

The ‘Shop Local and Win’ scheme starts this Saturday (November 30) to coincide with the Christmas in the City event.

Customers get a collector card that will be stamped each time they visit a participating retailer.

Once six stamps have been collected using at least two different retailers, the customer is able to enter a free draw for a £50 BRAVO Brechin shopping voucher that can be spent in any of the participating shops.

A total of 28 local businesses have become members of the scheme as it aims to highlight the many shops, cafes and hairdressers etcetera, that are proud to be based in the City of Brechin, and to encourage an increase in footfall during the busy run up to Christmas. The full details of participating retailers are available at

There is also a Brechin Shop Local and Win app available to download free from the Google Play store.

A spokesperson from BRAVO commented: “The scheme is being organised and administered by the BRAVO Brechin group.

“The group organise a number of events throughout the year with the aim of ‘putting the HEART back in the City’.

“This latest ‘Shop Local and Win’ scheme is a result of requests from the public and retailers to provide a reward for the may loyal customers who know the surprising value and choice that Brechin has to offer.”
