Independent Businesses of Hebden Bridge and HX7 taking part in the first ever Totally Locally National Fiver Fest, from June 8 to 15 are hoping their £5 deals will encourage shoppers to think about where they spend their money.
The Fiver Fest promotes the main Totally Locally message - “If every adult in HX7 spent just £5 a week with their local independent shops and businesses instead of online or at the big supermarkets or chain stores it would be worth £2.9 million going directly into our local economy”.
Shops, cafés, restaurants, pubs and businesses taking part have put on special £5 offers for the duration of the Fiver Fest campaign. Just look out for the distinctive posters around town and online promoting all of the Fiver Offers – be quick, it ends Saturday, June 15.
Alison Bartram, proprietor of Heart Gallery on Market Street and Chair of the Hebden Bridge Business Forum is delighted with the response in Hebden Bridge and HX7 this week.
“The Fiver Fest campaign won’t change the world but doing something small can make a big difference to many of our local shops," she said.
"Watching businesses working together and promoting each other this last week on social media has been wonderful.
"I have personally been in to many of the shops involved and spent my hard earned fivers on lots of deals from two scrubbies for £5 (normally £3.50 each) in Hebden Cook and Mill Shop to tea towels designed by someone who used to live in Hebden Bridge at Wood & Wire.”
