Synergy Client Solutions raises a glass to independent businesses in Bristol as a day is set aside to celebrate them.
Yesterday might have been Independence Day in America but Bristol held its own ‘Independents Day’ to celebrate local businesses. Shops, cafes, restaurants and market stalls were amongst those who showed off their individuality yesterday. Tuesday saw traders from Old Market Quarter and Stapleton Road and members of the Bristol Independents campaign gather in Stapleton Road to promote the work being done by the local business community.
The main event took play on July 4th with cabinet members raising a special Bristol Independent flag from the Council House, College Green. Many traders and members of the local community attended. This was followed by a huge number of special events in shops and restaurants around the city. Synergy Client Solutions was also delighted to hear that the first 50 shoppers at 50 different independents businesses received a free special bag as a thank you for shopping local.
Synergy Client Solutions an independent customer acquisitions and marketing firm is very proud of the fact that Bristol independent businesses have managed to shine despite the economic downturn. Managing director of Synergy Client Solutions, Benjamin Jeanes was delighted that the event took place. He said, “We’re incredibly proud of our city and the fact that local businesses are supported by the local community and that they’re thriving. This was a great opportunity to celebrate independent shops and businesses but also for them to showcase what they had to offer.”
Synergy Client Solutions fully recognises the importance of people supporting their local businesses. Mr Jeanes said, “There is no better way to help your local community than to shop local. Using local services, shops and restaurants are a great way to get fantastic unique service and more attention to detail than some of these huge companies provide. Particularly where food in concerned these local businesses try to source their produce locally thus sporting local famers as well. Bristol has so much to offer, why not try something different?”
