Forres business promotions

Forres Loves Local

We work with Forres businesses to promote the town as a whole, and encourage shoppers to shop locally wherever possible.

Our social enterprise is a business member of Scotland’s Towns Partnership who run a nationwide ‘ScotlandLovesLocal’ movement and we have adopted the same branding for our own local campaign. Look out for the ‘Forres Loves Local’ logo in shop windows.

The following services are free to use in order to help business promote themselves locally.

We encourage business owners to use the hashtags #ForresBusiness and #ForresLovesLocal in their posts, as we do in our business-related posts. Th-s is an easy way to group together all business-related news and information, posted by anybody.
