As Blackburn with Darwen are confirmed as heading into Tier 3 from 2nd December 2020, now, more than ever we need to support small independent businesses in our local towns.
Blackburn Life has already launched its free business directory that includes FREE advertising for businesses on our social media feeds. So if you know a local business that you love, send them this link and get them to join https://blackburnlife.com/supporting-small-independent-businesses-in-lockdown/ today.
So, although it may seem easier to jump online and buy from the giant multinationals, remember that for our communities to thrive we need to keep our spending local too. So this year for Christmas, commit to buy your gifts from small businesses, pop into your market instead of the supermarket and find unique gifts in shops in your local area or town centres.
Blackburn Life will be launching more free support for small local businesses over the coming weeks including a new online portal to make it easy for small businesses to get online.
So let’s support local! Let’s do it together now!
