Independent Business Month(1 Post)
Loads of fun stuff happening in Basingstoke this month. Throughout July, shoppers in North Hampshire are being encouraged to show their support for Independent Business Month, which champions the shops and eateries which line our high street.
Independent Business Month is all about embracing the wide range of independently-owned shops and businesses here in Basingstoke. It is part of Independent Retailers Month, a national initiative which aims to showcase locally-run shops and businesses of all shapes and sizes throughout the UK.
To mark the month, a digital campaign has been produced to give Basingstoke business owners the opportunity to showcase their unique contributions to the local economy. Learn more about what your local indies have to say by visiting www.basingstoketogether.co.uk or searching #IndependentBasingsto
Shoppers also have the chance to take advantage of a range of special promotions running in shops, cafes, restaurants and galleries throughout Basingstoke in July, which will be published on social media. This will be in addition to a number of other benefits of supporting local businesses including the individuality of their product range or menu options and a more personalised experience from shop or restaurant owners who know exactly what their businesses have to offer.
Independent Business Month is run by Basingstoke Together, the face of the Basingstoke Business Improvement District (BID). The BID’s aim is to help Basingstoke town centre to thrive by creating destination events, engaging with consumers and supporting retailers and businesses.
