Celebrating Independent businesses throughout Bury St Edmunds from Tuesday 1st July to Sunday 6th July 2014
Bury St Edmunds is home to a wonderful array of independent businesses including shops, cafes and restaurants and a variety of professional service companies. A recent research programme from Action for Market Towns has yet again highlighted the importance of these businesses to the town and they are a key reason why people choose to visit the town on a regular basis.
During the first week of July we want to really celebrate these businesses, which contribute so much to the landscape of the town centre and encourage residents and visitors to support these important traders.
This year an Independents’ Day Fayre will be held on Friday 4th July 2014 from 2.30pm to 9.30pm. The event will include businesses from the town centre, stallholders from the regular provision market, and various additional traders. Many of the shops will also stay open late.
Our lovely provision market is home to many independent traders and will be present, as usual, in the Buttermarket and Cornhill on the Wednesday and Saturday of this week.
National research has statistically proven that money spent in local independent business is re-circulated into the local economy to a much greater level than is the case when purchases are made in national brands. So you can be re-assured that your purchase in an independent business will subsequently benefit other independent businesses in the Bury area.
