THERE will be discounts galore this Christmas as a special advent comes to town.

Barrow BID has teamed up with 24 town centre businesses to launch Barrow town centre’s 2021 Advent Calendar.

The calendar features a different business every day between the December 1-24, and behind each advent door will be a unique discount, free gift or special offer to entice local residents to visit Barrow town centre.

Members of the public will find discounts up to 20 per cent at high street brands, independent stores and market traders.

There are also discounts on festive food and drinks.

Les McLeese, Barrow BID Board Member, said: “I saw a similar idea a couple of years ago and thought it was a great way to showcase our local businesses and attract people to the town. We have kept our calendar simple, so people can use the same code to claim their discount or free gift at participating businesses, simply quote BBADVENT24 when visiting a business on their unique calendar day.”

Alan Elrick from Got it Covered said, “I love the idea, it enables businesses to give something back to our customers. We are giving away free Christmas Gift Packs including novelty socks and chocolates to the first 50 customers who visit us on our day, but you’ll have to open your calendar every day to find our advert and know when to visit us.”
