Radio Advertising: The majority of Suters Ltd advertising was with local newspapers, sponsorship programmes and some public transport advertising as well as glossy magazines like Vogue. When the Greater London based radio station LBC Radio which was originally known as the London Broadcasting Company (when it when national became known as "Leading Britain's Conversation") started broadcasting in 1973, Suters in Slough and Uxbridge ran several ads on the station during the early weeks.

Slough Spring Fayre March 1977 This was a promotion by Slough's shops and stores to get more people into the town centre, including Capital Radio's double decker "Fun Bus". It ran for a fortnight with Sabrina Cooper, neice of comedian Tommy Cooper as "Fayre Queen" who worked in Coopers Magic Shop in the High Street.
