Support your local independent shop this month!
We have lined up a month of activities and promotions to celebrate Independent Retailer Month. We hopethat the events will encourage people to shop locally, rather than doing all of their shopping with big-name stores, online, or at out-of-town centres.
July marks the UK’s third Independent Retailer Month, which aims to raise awareness of thousands of local businesses and increase footfall into town and village centres, helping independent retailers thrive. Independent Retailer Month is a really important time for shops and business like us, and we’re calling on shoppers to come along and see what we have to offer.
“The number of empty shops on British high streets has hit an all-time high this year, and the only way to stop that happening is for people to visit them, and support them. While many people do shop for convenience online, or at one-stop centres, there’s no substitute for great customer service and that sense of community that comes with shopping close to home, and we want to remind people of that.” Said Simon
Narborough Hall has certainly demonstrated how Independent retailers can prosper in difficult economic times. In 2011 wewere confirmed as the Best Independent Retailer in the North and Midlands and this year our Glenda won Best Retail employee and we were a finalist in the Independent Retailer of the Year at the Greats Awards, the Oscar’s of the gift industry.
