‘Where You Shop Matters' Campain stars Card Retailers Lark London and Halls of Llandaff

Posted on

Greeting card retailers, Lark London and Halls of Llandaff are among the independent retailers to star in Visa's current Where You Shop Matters campaign.

Pete Hall (owner of Halls) and Lark's owners, Priya and Dominic Aurora-Crowe all appear in specially shot videos commissioned by Visa as part of the credit card company's commitment to help 50 million small businesses globally to adapt to the changing landscape caused by the pandemic.

In a film, shot of them in one of their six card, gift and lifestyle stores in South London, Priya and Dominic, co-owners of Lark London share how, when lockdown happened, they diverted their efforts to developing their online presence, using Shopify.

For Pete Hall, owner of Cardiff-based Halls card shop, his film appearance is something of a sequel as he also featured in Visa's pre-Christmas campaign to prompt the public to support indies.

Visa said of the campaign:

Independent businesses are the heart of our high streets and the pulse of our local communities. Even though they've been through a difficult time, they never gave up. Through their creativity, resourcefulness and resilience, they've kept on going, adapted and inspired us all. Now they need our support. Visa is working with high street businesses to find new ways to do what they do best, now and in the future. Our local shops and services are finding creative ways to keep serving the communities that rely on them. They're going to extraordinary lengths to stay open. They're counting on us to get behind them. They're asking you to remember that where you shop matters.
