Carluke has around 70 shops and businesses in our Loyalty Scheme divided into 3 categories - RETAIL, FOOD&DRINK and SERVICES. When you use services or buy something - anything, there is no minimum spend - you can have your loyalty card stamped. Collect 3 stamps from each category (9 stamps in total) and send or hand your completed card in to the BID office at 31-35 Hamilton St, Carluke ML8 4HA. There will be a single cash prize draw from completed cards every month. Cards are available from participating shops and from the BID Office.
Standard shops like newsagents, shoe shop, children's wear, cards and gifts. Charity shops will stamp your card for a sale and may also stamp your card when you donate. Just ask.
Hairdressers, barbers, beauticians, opticians, dentists etc. Chemists may regard themselves as services due to the Pharmacy, or as retailers. Check the sticker symbol on the window or door, or ask a member of staff.
Butchers, bakers, takeaway food, cafes and restaurants: also pubs and the off license.
The supermarkets are retail, even if you only buy food on a particular visit.
Carluke Business Improvement District (BID for short) was established in 2014. The BID five year term ends on 30th September 2019. The directors need to decide whether to prepare a business plan for another five years and put it to a vote of businesses and organisations, or whether Carluke BID ends next September.
The background and issues involved in this are set out in THE STORY OF CARLUKE BID.

The board would welcome comments and suggestions as they consider the future of Carluke town centre. Please use our contact form or message us via Facebook.
Carluke town centre is at the heart of our community. It forms part of our identity and is the place we meet friends, relax and access the goods and services we need in our day to day lives. Retail shopping in town centres is on the retreat, but there are many other reasons to visit and use your town centre.
At Carluke BID, we recognise that the success of the town centre is important to everyone in our community. Please support our town by visiting when you can. For news of what's happening, please visit our facebook page.
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.
