November 2014 – Beaufort Street Network

Guide For Businesses – Shop Local

The Beaufort Street Network is partnering with Yelp for ‘Yelp Shops Local On Beaufort Street’.




In December Yelp​ will run​​ their Yelp Shops Local campaign. This is where they ask the Yelp community to take a pledge to shop locally for their Christmas presents instead of online.

We’ve been lucky enough to partner with Yelp to make their 2014 Yelp Shops Local Campaign an exclusively Beaufort Street campaign.

Here’s how it works:


Encourage the community to shop locally on Beaufort Street, instead of online in the lead up to Christmas​
