The Mall Blackburn Supports Independent Retailer Month

Thursday, 2nd July 2015

The Mall Blackburn has pledged its support to Independent Retailer Month, an initiative to draw attention to the contribution made to town centres by independent traders.

The campaign, which runs annually throughout July, champions the economic benefit to a community of having a mix of independent retailers and established brands. 

Data obtained by Independent Retailer Month shows that for every £1 spent with an independent retailer, between 50p to 70p circulates back into that local economy.

The Mall Blackburn is home to more than 20 independent retailers including Stems, Peter Jackson Jewellers and Beauty Spot Warehouse, alongside national retailers such as Primark, Debenhams and Costa Coffee.

Loraine Jones, General Manager of The Mall Blackburn, said: “We are acutely aware of the positive contribution made by independent retailers in Blackburn town centre, and encourage all of our shoppers to recognise the important role these traders play in our community.

We have a wonderful mix of longstanding independent retailers here in The Mall and they each add something different to our wonderfully diverse offering.”
