Burnham-On-Sea campaign to 'shop local this Christmas'
residents are being encouraged to 'shop local' and support town
centre shops this Christmas.
Chamber of Trade and MP James Heappey have this week issued a rallying
call to coincide with Small Business Saturday, which takes place
this coming weekend to encourage shoppers to support small local
shops and small businesses are the lifeblood of Burnham's town centre
- there's a great range of gifts and products available and we encourage
residents to 'shop local' this Christmas and give them as much support
as possible," said a Burnham-On-Sea Chamber of Trade spokesman.
James Heappey added: "Burnham's small businesses are a very
important part of the town centre, creating many jobs and providing
a real service to the community."
Business Saturday is a great opportunity to promote local business
and support local people. Small businesses are a vital part of the
local economy and it's important that we recognise the fantastic
work they do."
part of promoting Small Business Saturday, Burnham-On-Sea Chamber
of Trade is currently distributing copies of its Shoppers and Visitors
Guide leaflet which features over 100 shops and businesses across
the town centre.
