Number of traders supporting Seaton Fiver Fest tops 50

More than 50 independent traders have now signed up to take part in the forthcoming Seaton Fiver Fest.

They are joining the Totally Locally initiative, which is already encouraging shoppers back into town centres at over 40 other high streets across the country.

The Fiver Fest will run from October 5 to 12. It will see small businesses offer a wide range of £5 deals.

Shops, cafés, restaurants, pubs, and other businesses are taking part to showcase what independent traders in Seaton have to offer.

Posters are now going up around the town, promoting all of the Fiver Fest offers available.

Speaking at the weekend, Seaton businessman Marc Smith said:“The last National Fiver Fest was a huge success, with 41 towns and thousands of independent shops getting involved, and this time even more are joining in.

“We decided to join in with those other towns across the UK that ran the Fiver Fest last June, as it seems such a great idea for Seaton

“We’re joining in with the Totally Locally Fiver Fest to introduce some great bargains for local shoppers, but also to showcase the town and the great shops and businesses we have here, and show how important independent High Streets are to our communities and towns.”

The Fiver Fest promotes the main Totally Locally message: “If every adult in Seaton spent just £5 a week with their local independent shops and businesses instead of online or at the big supermarkets or chain stores it would be worth £1.6 million going directly into our local economy.”
