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 started broadcasting in 1973, Suters in Slough and Uxbridge ran several ads on the station during the early weeks.

Suters traded as an "Owen Owen store" for a number of months as this advertisement from October 1978 illustrates.
