Everyone! It is completely free for Chamber of Trade Members to be part of the scheme and we will supply you with a stamp for your business and a number of cards. 

For Non-Members who wish to participate there is a £20 per year fee to cover the cost of running the scheme.

 

How will it work?

Loyalty Cards will be available in all participating shops and will be free to all customers. Each card will have room for 10 stamps and customers will receive a stamp for every transaction over £5 in a participating shop. The loyalty cards will not expire and, once complete, will be eligible for entry in any of the prize draws being held. 

Once completed the customer will need to fill out their name, contact number and email on the back and either hand it into the shop or drop into the entry box located in Ashburton Information Centre.

The draw will take place up to 4 times a year, dates to be confirmed. The draw will take place in a public space and there will be one grand prize available consisting of an Ashburton prize hamper, made up of items from participating shops. 

 

A list of participating shops will be listed on the Ashburton Chamber of Trade website.
