Bognor Regis Independents Day: Four is the Magic Number!

Bognor Regis Business Improvement District (BID) is celebrating “Independents’ Day” this July to highlight the unique flavour that independent retailers and businesses bring to Bognor Regis town centre.

“Independents’ Day UK” is a not-for-profit campaign to support and promote independent retail businesses across the UK all year round, but with an annual focus on July 4th – which is, of course, American Independence Day.

Independent businesses account for around 65% of approximately 290,000 retail outlets in the UK and are at the heart of local communities throughout the country.  The latest shop survey confirms that 66% of ground floor businesses operating in the Bognor Regis BID Area are independently owned and operated.

The Bognor Regis BID’s “Four Your High Street” campaign runs for four days, starting on July 4, with the idea of businesses creating offers around the number FOUR, such as:

• Showcasing goods available for £4

• Offering discounts, such as 4% off

• Special offers, such as “4 for the price of 3”

In addition to social media and press coverage about the event itself, independent retailers will be given a chalkboard style sign to promote their special offers or show how supporting their unique independent businesses has a direct impact on the local community.

Brightly coloured banners highlighting the range of Bognor Regis’s fantastic independent retailers will be displayed on London Road until the end of July.

Quote from Bognor Regis BID chairman: 

“Local independent businesses make up a huge part of Bognor Regis’s unique high street.  We’re proud to support our independents who have committed their hope, time, finances and energy to making their businesses work in Bognor Regis, particularly in difficult trading times.  The high street can only keep its character with the support of both the local community and the thousands of visitors who come to our beautiful seaside town year on year. Come and support local businesses where and when you can and help our town to continue to grow and thrive!”
