Fiver Fest is coming to Sherborne from 9th-23rd October 2021! This is a national campaign organised by the wonderful folks at Totally Locally, learn more at www.totallylocally.org.
Independent businesses have the chance to use their collective power to encourage people back to our town centres, to say thank you to customers who supported them during these testing times and to prove once again that the small guys can compete with the online giants & the supermarkets whilst driving up our local economy.
This is not about just selling £5 things. It’s an opportunity to drive footfall, awareness of your business and encourage new customers to shop with you.
Offers should be something with a £5 spend to tie in with the £5 message (don’t use discounts like £5 or 5% off), something discounted from a usual price of at least £7/8, but the bigger the discount the better! Businesses not on the high street such as services, fitness etc can offer introductory services to get new clients on board. [Make the offer something worthwhile, not just old stock you are trying to shift].
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Any independent business in and around Sherborne can get involved by offering a product or service for £5 for the duration of the event. Just submit the details of your £5 offer on the back of this letter by September 24th to enable us to include them on promotional material.
SUPPORT / ADVERTISING
Posters will be distributed around the town for you to put up in your business and allow you to share your offer(s). Dedicated ‘Fiver Fest Sherborne’ social accounts have been created to promote offers. Please follow and tag us in your posts so that we can share them. We’d encourage you to share posts from your fellow businesses as well, by working together we can reach the biggest audience.
