Lincolnshire’s small independent retailers have once again been forced to close their doors, and the new lockdown comes at a crucial time where sales are vital in the run-up to Christmas.
Thankfully, many local independents don’t face such uncertainty this time, with a number of up-hill Lincoln retailers having implemented delivery and Click and Collect services for customers.
Business Growth and Relationship Manager at Visit Lincoln, Samantha Pover, said: “On the run up to Christmas, we are extending our support to retailers across the city and encouraging businesses to continue to trade online while their doors may be closed.
“Supporting our local community is at the heart of what we do, and the Shop Local Online campaign highlights the incredible resilience our local retailers have during these tough trading times.
“Shopping locally is so valuable to our community, as for every £1 spent, 63p stays in Lincoln.”
“We are continually updating our Visit Lincoln and Shop Lincoln websites to help locals residents find where to shop online from their favourite independents and high street shops for Christmas.
“This includes online shopping with home delivery or socially distant collection at their shop.
“Many businesses are also offering FREE local delivery and personal drop-off services.”
Some up-hill independent retailers are even working together during this time, holding onto another’s Click and Collect orders for customers whilst they are closed.
