Fiver Fest Set For Return
By Love Banff and Macduff on 01/10/2021
Totally Locally’s Fiver Fest, a national initiative which encourages independent businesses to promote £5 offers over a two-week duration, will return from 9 - 23 October.
Fiver Fest presents a great opportunity for businesses to entice new and returning customers across the threshold, and offers local shoppers a chance to find a bargain or two and visit some unexplored local establishments.
Independent businesses in Banff, Macduff and the surrounding 10-mile radius area are encouraged to take part in the free to join campaign by offering a £5 deal and promoting it to customers in their business locations and across their social media channels.
Lynn Wolk, owner of Trend DIY in Banff is coordinating the effort, commenting, “Fiver Fest is a great way to remind our local communities of the importance of supporting our local high streets. We saw a surge in shopping local during the lockdown periods over the past year and it would be great if we can maintain that shop local trend. Fiver Fest presents a great opportunity to encourage it. The impact of spending local is so important, it leads to more jobs, a better high street, a stronger economy and ultimately makes our area a nicer place to live.”
Businesses interested in taking part should contact Lynn by email, firstname.lastname@example.org
