Five Pound Message

Save money and grab yourself a bargain in Paisley town centre with great £5 offers from our local businesses as part of our October FiverFest Fortnight! 

Paisley is joining with hundreds of High Streets across the UK, and thousands of independent businesses, to put on special £5 deals across two weeks, starting this  Saturday, as part of the Totally Locally FiverFest Fortnight! 

Five Pound Message

We have a great range of £5 offers across the town’s retail shops, food and drink venues, and beauty salons. 

Around 65p from every pound spent locally, stays local – so by going for lunch, buying that gift or treating yourself to some pampering, you can do your bit to support the local community and its businesses. 

Shop Like Your High Street Depends On It

Colette Cardosi, Chair of Paisley First, said: “Get your Christmas shopping started early or enjoy a day in town with friends, or treat the kids during the October school holidays.  

“Our independent shops and businesses are what helps to make Paisley town centre special. These offers are to say thank you to the community for their support during these challenging times and to show just what great value our local businesses are. 

“Spending just £5 every week in Paisley town centre can make a big difference to  our local businesses and helps keep our town centre alive!”

Buddie with Superbia

Buddie the Lion, the Paisley First mascot, has gone global with an autograph request this week received all the way from Little Rock, Arkansas in America! 

Buddie received the request from a young fan, Ramsey McWilliams, who is on a  quest to collect mascot autographs from all across the world. 

Buddie with Superbia

Needless to say, Buddie was only too happy to help out and a signed autograph of Paisley’s favourite lion is now winging its way to Ramsey in the  US of A!

Buddie said: “Hopefully one day Ramsey and his family will be able to visit the  best town in the world which is of course Paisley!  

“In the meantime, I would like to wish all my friends here in Paisley, in Scotland and across the globe, a safe and Happy Christmas! 

“Looking forward to seeing everyone here in Paisley next year!”
