At the end of a hugely challenging year for our highstreets, Erewash MP Maggie Throup is urging residents across the Constituency to show their support for our independent retails and shop locally this Christmas.
Issuing her call to arms, Maggie said:
“Despite the colossal financial support package that the Government has provided to businesses over the course of the pandemic, 2020 will certainly be a year to forget for our highstreets.
“The run-up to Christmas is a vital period for retailers, and although it will undoubtedly feel very different this year, I would urge residents across Erewash to make a special effort to support the local economy.
“Our market towns have a fantastic array of independent shops ready to supply you with everything you need for a bumper Christmas, from that extra-special gift for a loved one to a showstopping turkey.
“My message is clear – let’s do our bit to safeguard jobs and livelihoods here in Erewash, whilst also keeping safe and following the rules of hands, face, space.”
