Kirkcaldy’s Capital Showcase 2019

This is something new. We have been heartened by the number of independent businesses choosing to make Kirkcaldy their home. In the last 18 months, more than 20 have either arrived in town – or expanded – all investing in Kirkcaldy’s future. It is their free spirit that is helping to shape our approach to reposition the town as a place ‘to do business’. It is their thinking that led to us developing the Citizens’ Lab – to better engage with all those who have a stake in the town. So we want to celebrate them. And what better way to do so that to provide a trail that takes you around the businesses … from boutiques to bistros, arts & crafts to sportswear, health & beauty to bridalwear, hairdressers to collectables … and includes a unique exhibition at The Kirkcaldy Centre, all leading up to Adam Smith’s birthday.

Think before you Click – Support Your Local Shops

The High Street is changing and will continue to evolve. It has changed because of the way we – as customers – shop. Fact.  That seems to be the price of progress in terms of technology  – the internet, smart phones and social media – all playing their part in what we see and what we buy.  We’ve changed our habits so much that it means the traditional High Street is under threat … or is it?
