As you know Buy Local is close to our heart. Support your independent, family owned, local businesses… We hear this more than ever when we’re out and about on our travels, meeting business owners and spreading the word about the Buy Local Campaign. ‘Use us or loose us’… and to be honest that couldn’t be more true.
But it’s also true that we as business owners have to grow and adapt with our ever changing market. The good news is, that the City Centre is leading the fight! Rachel Parkin of Reba Boutique is doing just that. Not one to sit back and let the economy or changing buying habits get the better of her or her beautiful independent jewellers store in Town. She is mobilising those in the town centre to come together and support the local indies!
With their branding, local indie retailers map, and her hand in the #peterboroughhour on twitter, Rachel is doing a brilliant job of getting business owners excited about the future for Peterborough’s local retailers. We are delighted to have an ally fighting hard for everything local in the area and it is obvious even at this early stage that Local Indie Retailers has real potential to make a huge difference in Peterborough!
