Hello fellow geeks!
We hope you are all well and have been enjoying this small burst of sunshine we've been having. Although i's not meant to last too long, we're due some storms later today!
Apologies it's been a couple of weeks since you've heard from us, the Summer holidays have kept us very busy in preparation for the kids (and teachers!) heading back to school next week. We hope you ave found our handy back to school guides useful!
Anyway! Jumping forward to today, we've had some amazing news! Do you remember back in June we asked for your votes for us for Skipton's Favourite Independent Shop in the Local Legends Awards hosted by The Yorkshire Press? Well we only went and won it! *Cheers loudly WOOP WOOP*
You can read all about it and what they said about us on The Yorkshire Press website here.
Thank you to everyone who voted for us! It's such an honour to win and it's so humbled to feel so appreciated in the local area too. Of course we wouldn't be as successful as we are without the support of our local close-knit community and our independent friends around us in town too. Check out just some of the favourite shops also in Skipton here.
“Wow! I’m absolutely over the moon, happy and totally overwhelmed about being voted Skipton’s favourite independent shop. There are so many amazing independently owned businesses in town and I am so humbled to know that the locals, and even those further afield who come to visit Skipton, love my shop so much and voted for me.
"In the scary times we are currently facing in retail, it is more important than ever to support your small, local independent businesses and the owners who work hard to bring something a little bit different to your local high streets. We all are grateful to everyone for supporting us – no matter how small your purchase may be, it all makes a difference!”
No independent can stand alone, we need the support of everyone involved in the local community to bring residents and visitors coming back time and time again. So thank you to all of our friends in the local area to continuing to be amazing!
