Businesses in lockdown – promote your efforts for free is an offer from Coast & Vale Community Action and includes micro enterprises in Ryedale
This is a message for independent traders in Scarborough, Whitby, Filey and Ryedale – there is extra support during the lockdown from Coast & Vale Community Action (CaVCA).
If you are a local retailer or a social enterprise, you can send us your website link for your business, a brief description of your business and invite existing and new customers to continue to order your products or services.
We would also promote your click-and-collect service.
Details that you send us will be published on our website and social media – Facebook and Twitter, adding to your own promotion.
Independent traders are the lifeblood of our communities and the local economy and will again be at the heart of the recovery when it comes. Their businesses are weathering the storm of the retail challenges but have boldly carried on while many national chains have departed, and they will be with us hopefully well beyond the pandemic.
Now is the time to make sure we maintain support for local people who run local businesses for local vibrancy.
This offer is a free promotion service by CaVCA to help support the community and particularly the independent enterprises during the current challenges.
Send the details of your business and its continued service to firstname.lastname@example.org
Social enterprises, which are businesses that aim to be profitable but also supports the community, are also a core part of CaVCA’s role and we welcome any requests for support from such independents in particular.
Independent traders have faced challenges from multi-national businesses, big corporate retail, online shopping, concerns over the town centre environment and Covid – but they are regarded as the key players in any new model of town centre shopping.
If you are a Scarborough business – a micro enterprise, a one-person sole trader or a small or medium-sized business, you are invited to become part of our promotion, at no cost.
