Please display the printable poster (see below to download it) with pride, in your street facing windows, to show visitors to our Minehead shopping streets that we are all joining together to support Independents Day 2021 in Minehead.
Independents Day 2021 takes place on 3rd and 4th July, this coming weekend but all you need to do is to pop the poster in your window to show that you are supporting all of our Independent businesses.
We will be in Minehead on Friday to take photos of the posters in your windows for posting and sharing on social media.
Independents’ Day UK is a national campaign that supports and promotes independent retail businesses across the UK all year round, but with an annual focus on 4th July.
Independents account for around 65% of the approximately 290,000 retail outlets in the UK and are at the heart of local communities throughout the country.
Independent retailers offer choice, diversity of product and service, tradition as well as innovation, and a more personal service to customers. They are also job creators and contributors to local and national economies, and with retail spending under pressure from the Coronavirus Pandemic, our local, independent businesses in Minehead really need support.
It is no secret that shoppers want diversity in their High Streets and that our many independent retailers give Minehead a distinct character and charm. So, whether your customers are looking for new clothes, items for the home, kitchenware, fresh flowers, a gift and a card for someone special, something for their pet or just having a coffee and a bite to eat, their support will make the world of difference to your business and to our local economy.
Please continue to use the Shop in Minehead website, shopinminehead.co.uk to advertise your business and to share photos, news, and live information about any offers or special promotions you have on the Visit Minehead social media pages, using the #WeAreMinehead
