People Of Walsall – Your High Street Needs You!
Buy Local Week - 3rd-9th June 2013
Many Walsall residents find themselves frustrated – and perhaps a little sad – at the amount of local high street shops and services that have closed down.
‘Buy Local Week 3rd – 9th June 2013’ is a campaign supported by The Best of Walsall, 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 Alex Murray – Managing Director of the bestofwalsall, “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. “High streets without a variety of shops and services lack life, vibrancy and that all-important pint of milk!”
Locals who go to www.thebestof.co.uk/walsall to pledge their support during Buy Local week 3rd – 9th 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!
Business owners wishing to display a Buy Local window sticker or to get more involved, should contact The Best of Walsall via www.thebestof.co.uk/walsall or call 01922 430829 for further details of how to do your bit!
