The Lifestyle Card
Launched in September 2018 by Sean and Fiona Caruana, The Lifestyle Card strives to support local business by offering a free advertising platform on our website, with their own designating listing page. This not only raises their business profile but also offers an audience of our 7000+ members for potential new customers. The only cost to their business is the discount/offer that they decide to give our members.
We encourage ‘business to business’ offers, networking opportunities and with a complimentary Lifestyle Card, they can also save money.
Our cards provide discounts and offers that make lifestyles more affordable, and by informing people about local businesses, we encourage them to spend locally and help their community to thrive.
The Initiative Behind The Lifestyle Card
With the changing nature of town centres, the future is local. By supporting local, the community creates demand for products and services. It nurtures a dynamic critical mass that draws people in and ultimately increases footfall in that area. The spread of the global pandemic has undoubtedly affected the economy. We cannot stop this, but we can make a choice with our money to help local economies stay afloat and give small businesses a fighting chance to rebound from this.
In terms of local businesses, the impact is even more obvious. When you shop locally, your money stays in the community and helps local development.
A healthy presence of small business in communities not only creates local employment but also helps people learn on-the-job business skills, empowering the next generation of entrepreneurs.
In addition, local businesses tend to hire local such as builders, carpet fitters, solicitors, accountants, and insurance brokers to help them run the business. They are also likely to stock locally sourced products, building relationships that help the whole business community prosper.
An increase in support for local business helps drive up the appeal of the shopping area and attracts tourism into the community. The effect has a positive impact on adjacent hotels, restaurants, and local attractions.
Small businesses, especially retail stores, are often major contributors to the heart of a community, and working together with local organisations and local government, they collectively create and preserve the character of their town.
