Just the weekend to go before the 14 days of Love begins. So what’s it all about?
It is a brilliant initiative called ’14 Days of Love’ which starts on 1st February and runs through to St Valentines Day.
‘14 Days of Love’ is all about the people of Britain showing some love and appreciation to the millions of small business owners right across the UK but most particularly locally here in Carmarthen. Carmarthen has many small to medium businesses that have continued to be there for its customers despite what the economic climate not to mention what the banks may have thrown at them. They have shown a tenacious spirit together with a smile so now its time to show these unsung heroes our love for them.
Our ’14 Days of Love’ campaign is encouraging people all over the country to ‘share some love’ about a great local business.
We’ve set up a page at www.thebestof.co.uk/carmarthen (from Monday 1st Feb) where anyone can go and declare their love for any great local business in the area. So whether your unsung hero is in Ammanford, Llandeilo or Llandovery ,in the East of the County or along the A48 at Crosshands or further South near Kidwelly or West from Carmarthen through to St Clears and Whitland or North towards Cynwyl Elfed and Newcastle Emlyn do “kiss and tell” and give some love to this business by telling us all about them and make the day of a business owner who’s not used to being told how good he or she is. By sharing some love in such a simple, but tangible way, people can shed a little light into the dark of winter and make the world just a tiny bit better place!
We’re pulling together a list of the Top 20 ‘Most Loved Businesses’ in Carmarthen and surrounding area, which you will see daily on the Love o Meter and a separate list of the Top 5 ‘Most Loved’ businesses by category – so ‘most loved florists’, ‘most loved printers’, most loved Dentists, ‘most loved tree surgeons’ etc right across the UK.
In addition, we’re recognising Carmarthen’s Greatest Lovers – the people who are giving the most love to support great local businesses!!
Feel the Love over the next 14 days starting 1st February!
It’s a fun campaign, with a serious message, and it’s designed to make the business owners here in Carmarthenshire feel better about themselves, because they feel the love of their customers – something us Brits are normally overly reticent about.
There is also a huge plus for the businesses that receive some love – they’ll have dozens and dozens of great testimonials from their customers and the publicity and kudos from getting a position in our Top 20 ‘Most Loved’ listings will last long after the campaign has ended.
So please do take a moment and give some love to your favourite business and tell us why they are so loved.
