THROUGHOUT July Midhurst will be involved in Independent Retailer Month, a celebration of local shops.
Midhurst Town Team has lined up a month of activities and promotions to support the national campaign which invites residents to rediscover their high street.
The Town Team hopes the events will encourage residents to sample the great range of specialist retailers, coffee shops and restaurants.
Independent Retailer Month aims to increase footfall into town and village centres, helping traders stay open.
John Quilter is chairman of the Town Team. He said: “There’s no substitute for great customer service and the sense of community that comes with shopping close to home, and we want to remind people of that”.
Independent Retailer Month posters will be displayed by the businesses taking part.
