From 5th to 12th October 35 independent shops in Stroud took part in the Totally Locally Fiver Fest. We're now preparing for the even bigger Fiver Fest in 2020, from 15th to 29th February!
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?
