Shop Local This Easter!
THE National Liberal Party will be encouraging people to Shop Local This Easter! It will be the latest phase in the NLPs long-term campaign in support of local shops, small businesses and the self-employed.
The campaign will remind shoppers that all local shops are under threat. High business rates, the recession, excessive red-tape and the growth of out-of-town superstores have forced many local shops to close down.
The NLP educational and outreach material will explain the importance of local shops – especially for the elderly, young mothers and those without cars. In addition, they provide the setting for meeting neighbours and friends – thus providing the ‘glue’ that helps to maintain any community.
