The Bath BID recognises the importance of independent retail & leisure businesses to the city and they represent 23% of our levy payers. To this end we are keen to maximise opportunities wherever possible and the nationally supported ‘Independent Retailer Month in July’ is an early opportunity to engage. To maximise reach and impact we have chosen to work in partnership with the Federation of Small Businesses, Trinity Mirror, Total Bath and VisitBath to promote the wonderful independent retailers in the city, during the month of July.
Independent Retailer Month is a campaign that runs annually throughout July to highlight the important role smaller, local, independent retailers play in the communities they serve, the local economy they contribute to, and in the retail sector as a whole. Click the icon below for a pack of useful free materials to help you set up promotional activity for the month and please make sure you tell us what you are doing so we can support you and promote what you are doing to make sure Bath is on the map over this period when independent retailing will be getting national profile.
