Independent stores in the West End Plymouth and in Plymouth Market are joining in our two-week Shop Local campaign from October 9 to October 23
The West End Plymouth is joining more than 100 Independent High Streets across the UK from this Saturday (October 9) to put on special £5 offers for two weeks in the TOTALLY LOCALLY FIVER FEST.
There will be a selection of £5 offers at West End businesses, aimed at encouraging more people to shop locally and support our independent shops, cafes and restaurants which have been hit hard by the COVID pandemic.
To usher in the event, the Plymouth City Centre Company, is hosting an hour of live entertainment on Saturday with steel band Real Steel performing in Frankfort Gate from mid-day until 1pm.
Steve Hughes, chief executive of the Plymouth City Centre Company, said “Fiver Fest is now a big part of our work for our independent businesses in the West End and across the city. The community support for local businesses has been amazing during lockdown, so these offers are to say thank you to customers, and to highlight the great value and economic impact of shopping locally.
“Real Steel were really popular at our West End Carnival so we decided to bring them back to create a festival atmosphere in the West End and around Plymouth Market. We hope people will come in, enjoy the entertainment and spend some time browsing our many brilliant independent businesses.”
The special offers can be found on the Shop4Plymouth website at https://shop4plymouth.co.uk/fiver-fest/
So, pop in and see what our brilliant West End businesses have to offer.
