This autumn, we are delighted to be launching a new initiative in some of our branches across London and we wanted to share the news with you first.

We are lucky that many of our braches are located on some of London’s most iconic small high streets, like the boutiquey Hampstead high street, Islingtons’ eclectic Upper Street, Primrose Hills’ cool Regents Park Road and Notting Hill’s iconic Kensington Church street.

On all of these high streets, our neighbours are usually small independent businesses with a great community spirit. There are very few big chains or supermarkets and we like it that way. So, this summer we will be inviting and supporting small independent businesses to participate in our Small Business Saturday’ events in some of our branches throughout the summer.

We know the importance of giving small businesses a helping hand and that a little bit if support can go a long way. This is why we are offering a small space in a few of our branches across London for free, where flourishing new businesses can be introduced to our own customers and can introduce themselves to a new customer base.

We know our customers like our independent nature, our green credentials and our super friendly service and we hope you will love this initiative, whether you’re a customer or small business owner, a maker or a crafter.

So if you’re a local honey-maker, candle maker, pot thrower, knitter or even a peanut butter maker, but you don’t know how to get your product into the publics hands, we’d love to help. If you’re a small business, and you would like to know more, please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you. Simply fill in the online form here for more information.
