Saturday 29th February 2020 will be a bonus day for all with it being a leap year, but especially for those who visit Congleton Town Centre on this day. To mark the leap year and the end of the Fiver Fest Fortnight, many shops and businesses in Congleton are participating in the first Congleton Bonus Day.
The aim is get more people shopping locally and so on this day, when spending £5 or more in the participating shops, you will be given a raffle ticket. Fill in your details and you could be in with a chance of winning vouchers to spend in the participating stores.
The local shops and businesses participating in the Congleton Bonus Day are: Bare Health, Bear Grills, Boots Opticians, Browns Jewellers, Carl Christopher, Congleton Kitchen, Congleton Oatcakes, Damand, Davenports, David James Menswear, Grace Brown Interiors, Hollins & Hollinshead Jewellers, House to Home, Isobel’s Fashion House, Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe, No.1 West Street, RJ& J Moore Greengrocers, Rogers Barbers, Ruby’s Fund Charity Shop, Specsavers, Sweet Pea, The Little Shop, Vision Express, Wendy’s Pet Salon and Wild & Wild Café.
Congleton Town Mayor, Cllr Sally Ann Holland said “I’m really looking forward to Congleton’s first Bonus Day and I think it’s great that the local shops and businesses are getting behind this event. It’s a Makers Market weekend, which usually means a few thousand extra people in town. We hope that many of the people coming for the Makers Market will also venture into our wonderful shops.”
Congleton’s Bonus Day also sees an end to another first for Congleton, the Totally Locally February Fiver Fest. Over 30 local independent shops took part in this from 15th-29th February, again with the aim of getting more people to shop locally. If every adult in Congleton spent just £5 per week in their local independent shops and businesses, instead of online, it would mean an extra £5.2 million per year going back into the local economy, making for a better High Street and better place to live, work and visit.
