Stroud Independent Shops take part in Totally Locally Fiver Fest

From 5th to 12th October independent shops in Stroud will be taking part in the Totally Locally Fiver Fest.

We will be publicising their special offers for the week through our Facebook page at facebook.com/totallylocallystroud on Twitter at https://twitter.com/fiverfeststroud on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/fiverfeststroud/ and via InStroud.

It is only open to independent businesses; sorry no chains and no franchises, within Stroud.

IF EVERY ADULT IN STROUD SPENT JUST £5 A WEEK IN OUR INDEPENDENT SHOPS & BUSINESSES, INSTEAD OF ONLINE OR AT THE BIG SUPERMARKETS, IT WOULD BE WORTH £4.5 MILLION PER YEAR GOING INTO OUR LOCAL ECONOMY, WHICH MEANS MORE JOBS, BETTER FACILITIES AND A NICER PLACE TO LIVE.
MAKES YOU THINK, DOESN'T IT?!

So, as an independent business, you need to come up with an epic £5 offer. It must be for £5, not £5 off or a percentage discount.
For example, how about offering something that was £6.99 or £5.99 for just £5 during Fiver Fest Week?
If you're a service business, how about offering something like an initial consultation for only £5?

When you post on your own social media pages, please remember to use the hashtags

...and help spread the word!
