Celebrating independent retailers in Luton town centre

Luton Business Improvement District (BID) is proud to be supporting local independent retailers throughout July as part of the national campaign – Independent Retailer Month.

Luton BID Ambassadors will be taking pictures of independent shops in Luton town centre and promoting their details via its social media channels throughout the month to celebrate local shops and the important role they play within the town and economy.

BID director, and director of Shaffi & Sons Ltd, Abbas Shaffi, said: “It’s great for us to be supporting our local independent stores and this initiative as a whole. This really encourages businesses to work together and build on their strengths.

“It’s also an opportunity to support and promote growth, development and investment, as well as a sense of business community and it’s something we are really excited about.”

The Independent Retailer Month initiative is nationwide, and aims to encourage UK consumers to support local independent retailers and businesses.
