Totally Locally Fiver Fest
Independent businesses across west Cheshire are taking part in the Totally Locally national Fiver Fest, from 5 to 12 October 2019 with over 40 other towns throughout the UK. The campaign encourages shoppers back into their local town centres and high streets with £5 promotional offers at independent retailer’s stores.
Shops, cafés, restaurants, pubs and businesses taking part are putting on special £5 deals for the duration of the Fiver Fest campaign. Just look out for the posters around the high street and online promoting all of the fiver offers.
On average each independent business has around 12 local suppliers who are also often independent, family run businesses. So that £5 spent is re-spent locally as well, further helping the local economy. Tiny actions like this can make a huge impact when lots of people vote with their feet.
When you shop at local butchers, bakers, farm shops and greengrocers, it is likely that much of the produce has had a short field-to-fork journey. By cutting down on these miles, you are reducing the environmental impact of your food. Along with supporting local farmers, it means the food is likely to contain more nutrients and have less packaging.
Northwich Business Improvement District (BID) will be listing offers from independent businesses in the area on the Visit Northwich Facebook page.
