Get into Ashton’s Independent Retailer Month early enough and you could grab a bargain in the process! The event forms part of a national campaign called “Celebrate Independent Retailer Month” and will run in Ashton-under-Lyne throughout July.
Ashton Town Team is working closely with independent retailers in the town centre to celebrate the range and diversity of products and services on offer.
Independent retailers provide individualised services and often better value for money
Cllr Bill Fairfoull, chair of Ashton Town Team, said: “Independent retailers are often better placed to provide individualised services and value for money. Ashton has the highest concentration of independent retailers in Greater Manchester and we want to promote our hidden gems to a much wider audience.”
Among the hidden gems in the Ashton are music shops, leather goods, interior decorating, clothes, shoes, hairdressers and beauticians.
Local Independent Retailers proud to take part in Independent Retailer Month
Val Unwin, of Decisions Designer Wear for women, Fletcher Street, added: “We are proud to be part of Independent Retailer Month and hope it serves to remind people of the many benefits of shopping local.
“Independent retailers in Ashton town centre provide valuable employment, community services and events.
Special Promotions, Activities and Events designed to re-connect with local consumers throughout July
“During Independent Retailer Month, Decisions will be offering our customers a 10 per cent discount off our Frank Lyman Designs range, who are supporting us, plus a free gift on each purchase from the range. This will be available to customers from July 6 to 13.”
