“As soon as we became aware of this ‘craze’ we wanted to make our businesses aware of how they can take advantage of it,” said BID chief executive Mark Cordell.

Some have been turned into virtual Gyms or PokéStops, places players go to battle other Pokémon trainers or to stock up on supplies, while others have been using the game’s in-app purchases, such as Lures, to drive foot traffic to them.

Mr Cordell said he did not know if any Bury businesses had taken advantage of this yet.
