Shepton Mallet Fiver Fest
Shop Local on Saturday 15th to Saturday 29th February in Shepton Mallet!
Local shops, businesses and the weekly Friday market traders are bringing Fiver Fest to Shepton Mallet High Street.
This is part of the national Totally Locally campaign, Fiver Fest celebrates local businesses, often run by families or individuals, making a real contribution to our unique market town.
The Fiver Fest promotes the main Totally Locally message:
If every adult in Shepton Mallet spent just £5 a week with their local independent shops and businesses instead of online or at the big supermarkets or chain stores it would be worth £1.9 million going directly into our local economy.
This can have a huge impact on our high street, boosting the local economy and increasing employment. It's also a great opportunity to step into a shop you've never been into before and discover what makes Shepton's independents so special.
On average each independent business has around 12 local suppliers who are also often independent, family run businesses. So that £5 spent is re-spent locally as well, further helping the town. And the beauty of spending £5 is that it’s easy, guilt free and pretty much anyone can do it. Tiny actions like this can make a huge impact when lots of people vote with their feet.
So come along to your High Street and support local!
