Time is running out for business owners to sign up for this year’s Fiver Fest.
The annual festival, which encourages spending money in local shops and businesses, will return to Bridport for two weeks on October 9th, with two week specials of Â£ 5 from independent businesses in town.
Business owners must register before midnight on September 30th to receive an entry in the Fiver Fest booklet.
This year’s festival will be taking place in the city for the fifth time and the organizers of Totally Locally Bridport are encouraging everyone to participate.
A spokesperson said: âFiver Fest encourages people to think about how they are spending their money with a simple message: If everyone in Bridport and the surrounding villages were to spend Â£ 5 a week on a local store instead of online or in a large one Supermarket, would we could add an extra Â£ 2.6million to Bridport’s local economy. ”
Antonia Squire, Co-Founder of Totally Locally Bridport and Owner of The Bookshop on South Street, added, âAny city that has a significant number of independent and operated businesses and businesses has a group of passionate experts who love things at their heart they do and would like to share this passion with others.
âFiver Fest is a great way for people in the community to dip their toes into the very different experience of shopping with locals, taking the time to explore, chat and see how local shopping is for them can work. ”
