This Christmas we're supporting local businesses with a newly developed Norwich Online Shopping Directory hosted on VisitNorwich.
With the announcement of a second lockdown, the Christmas plans for Norwich BID and VisitNorwich needed to change swiftly, providing support for our local businesses and traders in these challenging circumstances. Following the news that click-and-collect would be available, and discussions with local businesses, we decided to create an online shopping hub specific for Norwich.
This shopping hub is accompanied by a comprehensive campaign to encourage people to support their local businesses, from shops to restaurants to department stores. A short film is currently in production too, from the same team behind the #NorwichNextChapter film.
All businesses who have an online offer are invited to participate in the #NorwichDirectory. If you would like to be included, please email email@example.com with a hi-res image, a short paragraph with details of your business, and details of your online offer.
If your business is participating in the Norwich Directory, please do share details through social media, newsletters, and on your website. The more people we can reach, the stronger the directory and subsequent sales! If you do share a link, please use #NorwichDirectory, and tag @VisitNorwich and @NorwichBIDUK.
We understand how crucial the festive period is for trading, and we're here to help in any way we can. Please get in touch if you have further suggestions.
