We have now officially launched the new ‘Experience Blackburn’ App for Blackburn Town Centre.
The new app, launched on Friday 3 July, will not only help to promote businesses in the town centre, it will make it easier for visitors to see what Blackburn has to offer.
Benefits for visitors
The Experience Blackburn app is a complete directory of businesses in Blackburn town centre.
The app lists the names and locations of businesses, their contact details, description – and event links to their website and social channels.
The app allows you to easily search for your favourite shop, and also new places to try.
As lockdown eases, the Experience Blackburn will also be updates with news and events for you and the whole family to enjoy. So, what are you waiting for? Download the app today!
Benefits for businesses
We’ve had some really great feedback from BID members and made some changes and updates to the App during the ‘soft’ launch, so thank you to all those who helped with that.
We’ve even had a report of a new customer visiting a business as a direct result of the App, having not known about them before!
Please help to promote the App by sharing our posts, and including ‘Find us on the Experience Blackburn App’ on your online platforms.
If there’s anything you’d like to add or change about your listing, or you’ve any offers you’d like to share, please do let me know.
