As we reported earlier this year ‘Love your High Street’ is back this June and in honour of Torbay’s local retailers, and they are now looking to find the ultimate ‘High Street Hero’,a person or business that really make a difference to your shopping experience.
Liz Edwards, Senior Business Advisor and project lead, says: ‘Following the success of the Love your High Street campaign, with a great number of local retailers showing their support, we want to recognise the people and businesses that make Torbay great. If you know a person or business that goes the extra mile, always put a smile on your face or offers exceptional customer service, then these are just some of the reasons why you might put your Hero forward.’
Love your High Street encourages local people to shop more frequently in local shops around the Bay and helps spread the message about why spending locally is so important and so far over 100 retailers have signed up to be part of it.
Lyn Grant, who has joined the campaign with her business Cloudberry Lily, said: ‘This kind of initiative is a fantastic idea for the independent businesses of Torbay High Streets. It’s simple to do and really captures the spirit of why people should shop locally. There are some fantastic independent businesses across Torbay and I hope they all get involved.’
