Lewisham launches Shop Local project

Lewisham Council has launched a local deals service - like a hyperlocal version of Groupon - for Lewisham businesses to promote special offers to local residents. It's a smart way to support independent businesses in the borough, if they can build local awareness in the service and - from our conversations with one of the major daily deal services - South East London deals work well.

Businesses in Lewisham can get ongoing exposure and attract new customers through Lewisham Council’s new deals scheme.
We’re asking businesses to offer a special discount for people who subscribe to the Lewisham Life enewsletter. All the offers will be listed on a secret page on our website that only members can access, and every future edition of our enewsletter will advertise the discounts scheme.
It’s up to businesses what discount they choose to offer. Possible examples include:
  • everyday service and product discounts (e.g. 15% off)
  • two for one offers
  • free initial consultations
  • party offers
