Liverpool’s new digital currency

Independent Liverpool and their friends, Colu, have teamed up together to create what will now be known by independent businesses and locals as the ‘Liverpool pound’. 

Colu is a safe and secure app that will now allow those who are Independent Liverpool cardholders, to pay in the participating businesses through their phone – just like Apple and Android Pay. 

So far, there are 24 businesses and counting accepting this new, local pound. 

When you use the app to pay, you can get up to 15% extra for your money which therefore saves you money when you shop locally. 

Some of the local businesses that are taking part in the local pound include: 

  • Bakchich on Bold Street 
  • Barley & Beans on Hattan Garden
  • Hus on Tithebarn Street 
  • Baltic Social on Parliament Street
  • Crust on Bold Street 
  • Muster Custom Coffee on Argyle Street 

If you’re feeling intrigued, go on and download the app in the Apple or Android Store, and when you do so, you receive £5 for free just for being a local shopper! 

Let us know if you’ll be using the Liverpool Pound and where you’ll be using it! Contact us through the comments, Twitter and Facebook!
