urged to back local shops this Christmas in Burnham
residents have this week been urged to support local traders by
shopping in town this Christmas.
Chamber of Trade is encouraging shoppers to use the town's High
Street over the festive season.
Saturday, the Chamber handed out copies of Burnham Shoppers Guide
booklet to shoppers in the High Street to promote the town's range
of independent shops and to mark the UK's Small Business Saturday.
Martin Cox also gave his backing to the campaign, telling Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"I'm very keen to see local people supporting Burnham's town
centre by doing their festive shopping here. Our shops offer a
great range of products and offer a far more personal service
than shopping malls."
Chamber of Trade spokesman added: "Burnham has a great range
of independent shops selling a variety of gifts, from clothes,
food and artwork to electrical products, flowers and children's
wait in queues and travel miles to the malls this Christmas when
your festive shopping can be done here in Burnham on your doorstep,
helping Burnham's economy at the same time."
pocket-sized Burnham Shoppers Guide booklet was unveiled by the
Chamber of Trade last month, as featured here.
