We had our very first 'Independents' Day' celebration on Monday 4th July 2011. Spurred on by Skillsmart Retail and supported by Pershore Chamber of Trade we decided to celebrate the day by saying thank you to our customers for their support and to really shout about what makes us and our High Street special.
Many of the shops in Pershore participated and hopefully Independents' Day will become an annual event. Some visitors suggested we should make it a monthly event. I certainly would not mind as it meant we sat around drinking and eating all day!
