Bira Launches Second Annual Campaign for Valentine's Day - #LoveYourHighStreet

Posted on in Business News

The British Independent Retailers Association is championing the high street again this Valentine's Day for the second consecutive year with its #LoveYourHighStreet campaign.

Love your high street

The association, which works with over 6,000 independent businesses of all sizes across the UK, aims to strengthen the love to the high street through the initiative.

Designed to coincide with the first seasonal event of the year, the campaign encourages both in-store and online shopping, emphasising the importance of supporting local businesses.

Open to all retailers, Bira offers a comprehensive bundle of resources and information, irrespective of membership status. The toolkit includes social media content for Facebook and Instagram plus downloadable posters in a range of sizes.

Andrew Goodacre, CEO of Bira said: "We know that the high streets and our shops need additional support in the face of anticipated challenges in 2024. Recognising the upcoming hurdles, we want to offer extra support to our indies.

"Valentine's Day marks a pivotal moment in the new year's calendar for retailers, and this campaign aims to empower them to market themselves more effectively than ever."

The campaign will also be further supported by BIRA with the campaign tag #LoveYourHighStreet which will also help further boost social media reach and coverage in each retailer's area.
