York is about to open for business again – and today we’re launching a brilliant new scheme to help you make the most of it.
It’s called YorkMix+ and it’s a way for you to save money and support our fantastic local businesses at the same time.
We’ve teamed up with shops, bars, restaurants and more to bring you fantastic special offers.
There’s already 24 unbeatable money-saving offers available, ranging from:
- 20% off fish and chips at two chippies
- half price cocktails at a top hotel
- 20% off lunch, afternoon tea and dinner on City Cruises, and
- 10% off gym membership.
And we have many more ready to add in the coming days and weeks – as businesses open up at each stage of the roadmap.
So how do you take advantage? It’s simple: you just have to sign up for YorkMix+ membership.
You can either choose to pay monthly for just £4 a month – or sign up for a whole year of offers at the introductory half-price offer of just £20.
Then you get a unique digital YorkMix+ card – show this to the participating businesses, and save a fortune all year round on food, drink, attractions and much more.
Mix+ is a brilliant way to help support York and North Yorkshire businesses hit so hard during the pandemic. And the funds raised go towards supporting our local, independent journalism too.
And we’re delighted to have team up with York’s top food writer Ben Thorpe, of York On A Fork, to create YorkMix+ – one of the most trusted names in the city.
It’s free for participating businesses – and Phil Pinder of York Retail Forum and The Potions Cauldron thinks it’s a brilliant idea.
“Initiatives like YorkMix+ are great for small businesses to market themselves in a way that might otherwise be beyond their a budget – and in turn offers repeat customers incentives to return time and time again.
“A winner for York, and I will certainly be making use of the offers available.”
Sophie Jewett, of York Cocoa Works, agreed: “Over the course of the past year we have been overwhelmed by the support from local customers.
“We are delighted to be able to give something back to them through the new YorkMix+ discount scheme. It’s such a great platform for York residents to be able to save money and discover local businesses.
“We are looking forward to offering a range of discounts across our shop, cafe and chocolate academy and working closely with the YorkMix+ team to inspire locals back into the city.”
So join Mix+ now – and start saving!
