PKC Place Management Team: FAO Independent Retailers, Restaurants and Public Facing Businesses in Perth and Kinross. 6 Jan 2021.

I can't even imagine how you are all feeling today so I'm going to press on with what we can do in the immediate few days and weeks to get info out on behalf of those of you who are permitted to trade.

We are tweaking the business directory on PerthCity.co.uk to transform it into a one stop Lockdown resource for the public.  So, takeaways, food and drink shops, online deliveries... everything can be listed here. https://www.perthcity.co.uk/directory.  If you log on you will see the “area” dropdown option for you to select your geographical location e.g. Kinross & Loch Leven.

This is, of course, free of charge to all of you and will be managed for the Place Management Team at PKC by Red String Ltd, our current contractor. 

Please follow the steps below in the first instance: 

  • Follow the link and register your business. If you've already registered you can update your info. https://www.perthcity.co.uk/directory-register
  • You can update this at any time and so we would advise you let people know your lockdown services now, and update it when things change.
  • You can also complete a listing even if you're not open or trading so that you're all up and running for reopening. This will be an ongoing directory.
  • You will need an image (not a logo!) that represents your business, yourself or your products. This should be 486 x 330 pixels so do have that ready. There are some tips for resizing via the link.
  • If you can't find an appropriate category, please choose Misc and email Nicki Martin on nicola@theredstringagency.co.uk. She'll be updating and adding to the categories as more come on stream.
  • Remember that this is a window for your business - write as though you're someone else talking enthusiastically about it! So instead of saying 'We have a great range of gifts." say, "Business Name has a wonderful array of gifts that will leave you spoiled for choice!"

We're going to make sure that everyone who sells online / is open for food is pulled through to a separate page, as well as doing some blogs around online shopping with local businesses during lockdown.  We'll be sharing all of this via social media.

I can't imagine how tough this is for you all and if you have any ideas that we can help with via our various channels and platforms, please just let me know.
