Four Kirkcaldy businesses have been nominated as most loved as part of national ‘Love Local Day’.
The event recognises the UK’s most loved local businesses as well as those most loved within their local and wider areas. The event has been championed by ShopAppy.com – a digital platform and shop local campaign that is being backed by Love Oor Lang Toun.
Thousands of nominations have poured in from across the UK over the last few weeks with a massive increase from 2020’s event.
Many locals have cited the adaptation of their local businesses during the pandemic “as their lifeline”.
Nominations for the love local day also highlighted friendliness, helpfulness and exceptional service that local businesses have provided during the most challenging times for local communities, high streets, markets, towns and city centres.
Dr Jackie Mulligan, Founder of ShopAppy – the organisation behind the UKs Love Local Day explained: “It has been a challenging last decade none more so than this last year for our town centres and high streets, but we know there is tremendous love for local businesses in our communities. No more so than in Kirkcaldy.
Love Local Day highlights the importance and positive impact these businesses have in the life of our communities and commercial hearts and how critical they will be to our social and economic recovery. It also shows them how much they are appreciated.”
Cara Forrester from Love Oor Lang Toun added: “It is great to hear that people in Kirkcaldy took the opportunity to pay tribute to some of our amazing local businesses.
“The business community has had so many challenges to face, so it is really fantastic for them to hear that they are in the hearts of local people and that they cherish the work they are doing.
“These nominations prove what Love Oor Lang Toun already knows, that we have a town full of amazing shops and businesses and we’d urge everyone to look local first and support their town.”
