MP urges people to get behind independent shops
4:42pm Monday 7th October 2013 in News
JAKE Berry MP urged Rossendale and Darwen to get behind independent shops in the last week of a competition to crown the area’s best.
The competition ended on Friday and was supported by local trade organisations, ISSL Web Design and Orbital Design and Print, who asked local people to vote for their favourite independent retailer.
Every voter is entered into a raffle to win a £50 voucher and prizes for the winning shops include professional marketing sessions and a tour of Parliament and lunch with Jake.
Jake said: “This competition is a small way of letting our local retailers know how much we appreciate and support them.
“Here in Rossendale and Darwen, we are really lucky to have many wonderful and unique independent shops who are the life blood of our communities.
“I’ve been overwhelmed by the support the competition has received.
The winner is expected to be announced soon.
