The next Totally Locally Fiver Fest is set to take place between 10th – 24th October 2020. This international campaign is held in towns and cities the world over, encouraging people to shop local and take advantage of the wonderful independent stores, cafes and restaurants on their doorstep.
Born out of the idea that it only takes a £5 purchase to support a local, independent business, Fiver Fest is all about empowering the public to support the high street.
WHAT DO BUSINESSES NEED TO DO?
- Simply come up with a £5 offer and tell us what it is so that we can promote it between 10th – 24th October as part of the campaign activity.
- Download the graphics here to share on your social media channels to shout about your involvement
- Print the poster and stick it up in your store.
- If you take photos of your offer and post online using the #fiverfest and #totallylocally hashtags, then Totally Locally and Chichester BID can help promote it.
This is also a great opportunity to push your offers via the LoyalFree App, we will add a FiverFest Trail to promote your great deals, please email [email protected] if you would like to take part.
Following reports that 59% of shoppers in Britain have used more local stores and services since lockdown and are researching their purchases online prior to entering a shop, Totally Local has also recently launched a Local Independents High Streets Online project. The new project provides a town specific website to showcase independents in your area. This gives consumers an easy way to view local indie stores and buy products from multiple local shops with one easy payment at checkout. Each participating business gets a secure, bespoke online shop for a payment of £3 per week. For more information please visit www.totallylocally.shop/#.
