The SKone reward card scheme from Stockport’s leading commercial property landlords has attracted three new businesses to take total offers on the scheme to over 80. Top sandwich franchise BAP, at the front of Merseyway, Barista Café Bar on Little Underbank and hairdressers Dry, also based on Little Underbank, are the new recruits.
The SKone card, which has been in operation for over two years, is given to every customer and their employees when they lease space in any of the 12 town centre properties.
BAP prides itself on making great tasting baguettes, baps, salad bowls and wraps and has been popular with Orbit’s Stockport customers, especially in Regent and Beckwith House, since it opened four years ago. Now via the scheme Orbit customers can benefit from 15% off meal deals at BAP when they show their SKone card at the till.
Owner Dominic Richards, who also has stores in Warrington, Wigan and Altrincham, said the scheme was a good one. “It helps me give a bit back to those who have been coming in from Orbit offices already and hopefully bring other colleagues over the road.”
Also recently joined the scheme is hairdressing salon Dry. Dry is run by Amanda Bell who is passionate about hair and has a successful track record in running salons.
She is just six months into her new lease on Little Underbank, describing her offer as ‘big hair, big dreams!’. She caters for men and women and is offering 50% off for new customers who quote the SKone card on appointment with 20% off all services thereafter when you show the card.
Kim Sanderson who owns Barista café and bar has also joined the scheme. Barista is situated in a listed building on the steps of the historic market in the Old Town offering a wide range of coffee and cakes and a changing menu of fresh daily specials. There is also a free delivery service to local retail businesses and offices.
Between Monday and Thursday Barista is offering half price coffee and 10% off food to SKone card holders.
Tony Jones, managing director of Orbit Developments, said: “The SKone card has been a great way to reward customers and their staff at all levels and is also giving us the opportunity to support and shout about some of the brilliant businesses that are based in the town.”
“We believe that Stockport is a fantastic place to do business and are delighted with the response we’ve had from customers and businesses so far.”
As well as the reward card, the initiative allows customers free access to the SKone hub in Orbit’s Regent House.
The Orbit sites included in the scheme are Regent House, Beckwith House, Mansion House, Wellington House, Grosvenor House, Crossley House, Hillgate Court, Applicon House, Cirtek House, Highbank House, Pathshire House and No. 1 St. Peter’s Square.
