The Sheffield Gift Card. Whilst own-brand gift cards are common place in retailers and shopping centres across the UK, in 2017 Sheffield was the first major city to introduce a place gift card in England. It's free to register to join the scheme and accept this local currency which is all about encouraging a higher level of city centre spending. At the moment this is a great way to lock in future spending post pandemic with our own local currency. Let us know your local business Facebook or Twitter name so that we can auto feed your content onto our social walls at We get thousands of new web visitors each week through boosted posts and adwords and many repeat visitors who use the site to catch up on the latest deals, promotions and info from city centre businesses. We send a weekly highlights bulletin to over 100K subscribers all of whom are local residents within a 30 minute drive time. If you're a city centre business, make sure we've got you listed.

Free advertising for independents. Specifically for independent businesses via Sheffield BID you can receive two weeks of free advertising on the large format digital screen at The Moor.
