Haslemere is marking its own Independents’ Day by encouraging people to buy from their local independent shops. On July 4th people across the country are being asked to back their local businesses by buying from local retailers in their High Street. The national campaign is organised by the National Skills Academy for Retail to champion local retailers.
To raise awareness of the campaign, a range of shops in Haslemere is taking part, offering discounts, tastings and children’s activities.
Julianne Evans of J L Nobbs stationers, who has been co-ordinating the campaign, said: “Retailers in the town have really come up trumps with a superb range of offers. So far 27 shops have signed up, but this number is increasing all the time. If you have a Haslemere Reward card, some of these outlets are offering double points.
“We are very proud of the unique mix of independents and chains we have in the town and would love people to come and see why.”
