The Best of Guildford is holding its second annual Buy Local Week from 2-8 June. As you know, supporting local shops and businesses is what we’re all about. We know that it’s the small, independent shops that bring vibrancy and variety to our high streets. We know they usually beat the chain stores hands down for value and customer service.
And we also know that if we don’t use them, we’ll lose them.
Small businesses rely entirely on their loyal customers to keep them open and trading. Shops that are part of a chain may be able to support other stores that aren’t as profitable but sole traders and independent businesses don’t have that luxury. So this June, we’re celebrating buying local with a party in Guildford town centre on 7 June!
The Best of Guildford, the Guide 2 Surrey, Barrel & Cask, Guildford Fringe Theatre Company, Disposables Direct, Vines BMW, Experience Guildford and Facing Heaven Food will all be out in force on Friary Street, at the bottom end of the High Street all day on 7 June. There’ll be music from So Sinatra, dancing from BKD Performers, facepainting, food and goodie bags (with some really fantastic special offers, I’m told!).
Friary Street, 7 June 2014 - come and party!
PS - If you’d like your business to be part of the celebrations, please email Sally on firstname.lastname@example.org .
