People Of Croydon – Your High Street Needs You!
21st May 2014

Many Croydon residents find themselves frustrated – and perhaps a little sad – at the amount of local high street shops and services closing down each month. 

‘Buy Local Week 2nd - 8th June is a campaign supported by thebestof Croydon, a local company which champions recommended independent businesses in the area for the benefit of residents and businesses alike. The core element of the campaign is to get people to do more for the area – a simple sticker in a window or car is one way but just changing how we spend can make a huge difference to the local economy. 
The campaign has the full support of Maud Todd – the local bestof Croydon champion , “We have distinctive and wonderful independent shops and businesses in our area, but we shouldn’t take them for granted. ‘Buy Local’ reminds us that they need the support both of residents and local policy makers. 
“We need to learn from other areas that have bucked the trend of empty shops and declining parades. With everyone committed to supporting local business, combined with a loyal and active community, we can do the same.” 

“High streets without a variety of shops and services lack life, vibrancy and that all-important pint of milk!” 

“Locals who go to to pledge their support during Buy Local week 2nd - 8th June, will also be entered into our daily prize draw. Every day, for 7 days, 5 lucky supporters will win £100 to spend at a great thebestof local business.

Get pledging and it could be you!”
