Behind the Windows: Love Independent1 min read

Visual merchandising studio with colourful vinyl letters

Summer’s here and so are our new season shop windows.

This is a very special campaign as we are celebrating all the local independent businesses that we believe make our towns a colourful place to live. From coffee shops to cycle repair shops, we are on the search for the wonderful, innovative people who are part of our community.

While the news might be all doom and gloom, it’s more important than ever to concentrate on the positive things our towns offer and show encouragement to those businesses we want to keep for many years to come!

Each pound spent with an independent helps to keep our highstreet unique and thriving. There is also a certain satisfaction you get from investing in a real person’s goals and ideas. Which is why, we’re using our shop windows to highlight some of our own favourite independents this summer.

Thanks to Sonja and the rest of the display team, the designs are bright, bold and will hopefully put supporting local at the forefront of people’s minds. We’d love if you joined the discussion – please share your favourite indies with us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.
