Shopping Locally in South Durham

Radio advertising is a great way to attract new customers to your business, and we have a new advertising package tailored to small, local businesses in our area – from just £50.

We’ve created a Shop Local radio advertising package for small and independent shops and businesses in South Durham which includes:

  • Ten Shop Local spot ads per month
  • A short profile, photo and web link on in our Local Shopping section
  • 10% discount on advertising and sponsorship (e.g. sale or blue cross promotions)
  • A Shop Local window sticker

Creating your commercial

You can record up to 15 seconds about your business.

We’ll come to your business and work with you on the wording, then record it with you on the same day.*

The start and end of the ad are the same for all Shop Local members. Ask one of our team to hear some examples, or just tune in to 105.9FM or visit!

*Commercial scripts must comply with relevant broadcast and advertising regulations. Commercial audio is to be provided by the participating business.
