Supporting Redbridge small business on Small Business Saturday – some ideas and your last purchase from Creeds

CreedsThe wonderful Creeds of Seven Kings is closing on Thurday 10th December.   This is a family run business for 110 years in the area.  Why not go and buy your last purchase from them and wish them well!  Ilford Recorder article here

FP Comms are offering a good deal to celebrate small business fpcomms_logoSaturday.  If you sign up to the Flexi PR service by the end of Saturday you get a free professional press release for free!  Well done to FP comms for marking this national event. 🙂

 

Try out some local markets?  See our mini blog about the three we found in Redbridge this weekend – all the stall holders will be small businesses.

See Enterprise For London’s blog about about the event and the importance of local shopping with small businesses.

Here’s a promotion for a small business in Redbridge – (that responded to my call-out for a comment on the small business Saturday…)

I have a business working with startups and small businesses on their Internet and social media strategy – called Innspyre.  It’s been going for a couple of years now.
Internet marketing represents a fundamental shift in the way things are done. Consumers demand interaction and engagement and they spend their free time inhabiting these online spaces. Why not be where your customers are. I help businesses understand the many online tools available and how to use their social media voice alongside their brand voice.
Small, local businesses are about people and community. In an age where the traditional High St is struggling, if they totally understand the power of bricks and clicks they offer something very vital indeed.
I’m not convinced enough is being done to support small businesses locally. If we invested time, money and effort, it would pay dividends in the long term. Vic Norman
Final word goes to Sat Kumar of Hansons Estates, just across the road from Creeds – It has so valuable to work alongside a traditional family-run firm.  You don’t get this so much nowadays. Creeds has served this community – a place where you can find anything you are looking for. Creeds has been a warm, customer-focussed and traditional part of the Seven Kings community. We are sorry to see the shop close down and wish the family all the best for the future.
