The Carluke BID loyalty scheme is simple. Each time you shop at or use a service in one of the participating businesses (They will have one of the symbols below in the window), just ask them to stamp your loyalty card. Once you have collected 3 stamps from each of the sectors below - so 9 stamps in total - just send or hand in your completed card to the BID office. The address is on the card. A draw will be made on the 1st of each month and the lucky winner will receive £100. We will contact the winner directly, so don't forget to put your name and a contact number on your card. (We won't keep your details or pass them on to anyone)
Cards are available at participating shops and at Clark's Bakers, and Top Barks dog groomers on the High Street. There is no cutoff date - your card will be entered in the next available draw. One entry per person per draw.
We have around 30 retail outlets in the BID including national retailers ALDI The Original Factory Shop, Scotmid, SemiChem and the Co-Op as well as independent retailers offering footwear and shoe-fitting, fishing tackle, cards and gift stationery, toys, flowers, bargain tools and hardware, furniture, soft furnishings and more. No minimum spend. Just ask your retailer to stamp you card when you make a purchase.
The BID is host to a range of services including banks, dentists, opticians, a travel agent, hair and beauty services, pharmacies, phone and PC repairs,, funeral services, plumbers, electricians and soft play.
Dentists, opticians and bank counter services count as a qualifying 'purchase', so remember to get your card stamped when you visit.
We have great restaurants and pubs for food and drink and a good variety of hot food takeaways. For daytime fill-ups, we have sandwich and snack outlets and for meeting friends we have great cafes. We also have an off license.
Our top quality butchers and bakers are included in this section rather than the retail section.
Not too long ago, streets and playgrounds were the venues for the most serious play. High levels of skill were developed and specialists achieved a stature beyond the classroom heirarchy. Come along to Rankin Gait Carluke on 5th August 12 noon - 4pm and watch, learn and play the street and playground games which were common throughout the UK and are still played around the world today.
Street and playground games are a great antidote to the screen. Get some fresh air, have some exercise and learn a new skill or two. Above all...have some fun!!
Come on mums and dads, grands and granddads, Do you remember these games? Can you show the young ones how it should be done? What about street and playground songs? We have those too, and in case you need to rest for a while, we have a traditional Punch and Judy show.
Most games involve the development of physical skills such as hand-eye coordination, balance and dexterity. Children can discover and nurture talent, build confidence, self esteem and make friends through playing games.
The above image is from Bangalore, India. Children everywhere love to play and to organise their own play once they understand the basic rules. Play is an important part of development as it teaches children social rules and team working skills.
Carluke Business Improvement District (BID for short) was established in 2015. It is an organisation led and paid for by Carluke town centre businesses and organisations. The aim of the BID is to deliver a five year plan to help improve the centre of Carluke for everyone, including businesses, non-profit community, and religious organisations...and of course the public.
We hope you will continue to help us improve the BID Area by using the goods and services based here, by supporting our events and initiatives, and by telling us what you like about the area and what would encourage you to visit more often.
We're passionate about supporting Carluke's local businesses and want to see them succeed. We use social media, photography and video to help promote businesses and show them at their best. You can see what Carluke has to offer by viewing our business directory.
