Celebrating independent businesses in Northampton town centre
Northampton town centre Business Improvement District (BID) is proud to be supporting local independent retailers throughout July as part of the national campaign – Independent Retailer Month.
Northampton BID hosts will be taking pictures of independent shops in Northampton town centre and promoting their details via its social media channels throughout the month to celebrate local shops and the important role they play within the town and economy.
This campaign is also open to other BID levy paying independent businesses, cafes, restaurants and professional services too.
Northampton town centre BID director, Alan Harland, said: “The BID always welcomes opportunities to showcase our unique attractions and the town’s mix of established and new independent retailers provides an offer that we are proud to promote.
“Our businesses are encouraged by the number of people who recognise that the support of the independent sector is a major factor in securing the growth of our business community, and the wider local economy.”
The Independent Retailer Month initiative is nationwide, and aims to encourage UK consumers to support local independent retailers and businesses.
