Originally published in October 2014, our colourful independent shopping guide, designed by Co-LAB, was fully updated and relaunched on Monday 4th July – Independents’ Day. The launch was supported by an advertising campaign with Bristol 24/7; it also featured in the July edition of our new e-Newsletter, sent out to subscribers that morning, and was picked up by Bristol Post who ran a three-page story, putting several retailers in the spotlight. The guide, which features a map and colour-coded listing, is available from each of the 90+ independent retailers as well as from local hotels and the Tourist Information Centre; it can also be downloaded from the Bristol Shopping Quarter website.
“As manager of an independent retailer on the edge of the BID area, I really appreciate the work the BID team does to help promote all its businesses, especially events like the annual Easter trail that encourage shoppers to explore the whole area.”
