Bridgnorth’s bolstered business

Since an inaugural meeting in August last year, Bridgnorth’s retailers have continued to meet with the aim of supporting and strengthening the town’s economy. Led by Love Bridgnorth’s Sally Themans, the events have attracted around 70 retailers including chains and independents, long-established and newer businesses.

“We have a fabulous town; with a rich historical tradition, a wonderful physical setting and a great sense of community, coupled with a wide selection of enthusiastic retailers and businesses. If we can work together, people who live here will want to stay and shop, and visitors will patronise our award-winning High Street,” explains Sally.

Coordinated ventures to date include two pre-Christmas late night shopping evenings including outdoor cinema screenings supported by Bridgnorth Lions, an anti-shoplifting workshop run by the local policing team, the support of the Prevent Pointless Plastic initiative, and poppy displays in shop windows. The group are now hoping to drum up support for duck-themed window displays in honour of Bridgnorth Lions’ Duck Race this Easter. The next meeting is on Thursday 14 March at 5.45pm at the Crown in the town’s High Street.
