Kendal BID in collaboration with ShopAppy.com is encouraging people to support their local businesses on the 14th of February for ‘Love Local Day’ – Love Local Day is one of the first events for a national campaign declaring 2020 The Year to Support Local.
Love Local Day will be centred on sharing the love of all things local. On 14th February, one Kendal business will receive a bouquet of flowers as a token of appreciation from the community. To decide which business should receive the bouquet, locals are being invited to nominate their favourite local business online or in person at Fantastic Kendal by 12th February 2020.
Dr Jackie Mulligan, Founder of ShopAppy who is leading the national 2020 Year to Support Local campaign adds “It has been a challenging last decade for our town centres and high streets, but we know there is tremendous love for local businesses in our communities. So this decade we are championing localism. This is the first in a series of activities being planned to encourage people to support local – and will highlight the importance and positive impact these businesses have in the life of our communities and commercial hearts.”
