Southport has so many unique, high quality independent shops, businesses and restaurants that we really believe should be shouted about! It is very hard for small towns in 2016 to compete with city centres, online and shopping centres in regards to attracting people to shop for their favourite brands but what Southport offers shoppers that others don’t is a superb level of quality of independent businesses.
We are looking to begin a campaign intended to profile and promote the independent businesses in Southport and to re-position Southport as a shopping destination in people’s mind and help them rediscover what there is to offer them here.
The campaign will take the form of 3 or 4 week long ‘Independence Weeks’ at key times throughout the year. We will run campaigns in the lead up to each week profiling businesses and would ask businesses to put something on during the week to be highlighted – be that live music in your bar, discount on meals, fashion nights, champagne shopping nights….. the possibilities are endless and can be entirely based on what you believe is right to showcase your business.
We will design campaign material and would issue window stickers to participating businesses highlighting to shoppers that they are independent and proud of it!
