Post lockdown, we’ve been encouraged to go out and spend to help boost the economy. Whilst many of us are lured back to the big retailers and chains, let’s not forget about small high streets and local businesses. If this crisis has taught us anything, it’s made us think more about the importance of community; supporting locally owned businesses helps the local economy and community to continue to thrive.
The independent retailers and traders at Connaught Village are welcoming shoppers back with more than just a smile… The unique community in the heart of the West End is full of stunning architecture, sophisticated charm and character. It blends an eclectic mix of independent galleries, fashion, beauty and lifestyle boutiques, alongside specialized cheese and wine merchants, an array of artisanal cafes, restaurants and traditional pubs.
As a show of appreciation to their loyal & valued customers, 14 retailers will be participating in an exclusive gift with purchase campaign. A free flower bouquet voucher will be offered (at each retailers discretion) to the first 50 high spending customers. Vouchers are redeemable at the exquisite boutique florist PM Flowers, where lucky recipients will receive a beautiful hand tied floral display.
Those participating in the incentive include: Bombay Palace, Saint Aymes , Fe Hair and Beauty, Lacquered & Stripped, Eliza Jane Howell, The Place London, Mud Australia, Buchanans Cheesemonger, Connaught Kitchens, Connaught Cellars, Kay and Co, Hyde Park Vets, Cluttons and Dellasposa Gallery.
In stark contrast to neighbouring Oxford Street, the community spirit at Connaught Villages lends itself well to local events and festivals which are usually scheduled throughout the year. Whilst we eagerly wait to see ‘what’s on’, escape the hustle and bustle and and enjoy a more relaxing shopping, socialising and dining experience.
