Caterham's Shop Smart, provides rewards for local shoppers, with over 50 shops and businesses in the Town now participating in the scheme.
Over 2,000 people have now registered to be Shop Smart members. This web site provides information about these shops, offers and locations around the town in both Caterham Valley and Caterham on the Hill.
A shopper's leaflet was distributed in May 2011, with details of all shops registered by end of March.
The overall scheme now has over 30 outlets in the Valley and 20 on the Hill. The idea is supported by local businesses, Surrey, Tandridge and Hill and Valley Parish Councils. Offers range from discounts of up to 30%, to free items, promotions and special terms.

Quote from Andrew Browne and Chris Windridge We are delighted to bring this exciting idea to Caterham's shoppers, plus retail and service businesses. It is a very simple concept and we have used the remaining funding from ABCs loyalty scheme grant to launch it, plus other local contributions. We hope to get more shops to join and it is part of our efforts to improve Caterham. We look forward to many entries!
