Be tempted to spend a tenner in Teddington
Independent traders are encouraging shoppers to bag a bargain and invest in Teddington’s economy.
More than 40 of Teddington’s shops, restaurants and cafes are taking part in a two week campaign, called the magic tenner, which will see them slash the price of certain products to £10.
The initiative, organised by Totally Locally Teddington, hopes to encourage residents to shop locally, support independent businesses and in turn the local area.
Initiative owner Tracey Wardhaugh said: “There’s a bit of maths that says if you spend £10 in a local shop that sells stuff from local producers, the amount of money that goes back into your local economy can be over £50.
“The more everyone spends within our area the stronger our economy grows, which means more jobs, better facilities, a vibrant town centre and a nicer place for us all to live.
“If there is more money swirling around your local economy, the better your local area will be.”
Tempting Teddington tenner offers will include meal deals, toys, beauty treatments, kitchenware, butcher’s meat, fruit and veg boxes, cakes, cycle accessories, socks, pony rides, chocolates, haircuts, flowers and more.
The campaign will run from October 17 to 31. For more information, visit totallylocallyteddington.co.uk.
