Free advertising for independent BID members to mark Small Business Saturday


To mark this year's Small Business Saturday, the annual event to encourage people to shop local with independent retailers, Newport Now BID has again teamed up with the South Wales Argus to produce a special publication.

And independent BID Levy payers in the city centre can take advantage of free advertising in the Shop Local pull-out being published with the Argus on Saturday, December 7.

The free advertising, available on a first come first served basis, is being funded by the BID. It's the second year of the partnership with the Argus and proved popular with Levy payers last year.

The special Shop Local pull-out will also be distributed to shoppers in the city centre on December 7 - the date of this year's Small Business Saturday.

To take advantage of the free advertising, which entitles independent BID Levy payers to a full-colour 6x3 (60mm x 85mm) advertisement in the pull-out, please contact Chris Fox at the Argus by email - or telephone 01633 777145. If required, the Argus will provide a full creative service for the creation of each advertisement.

All completed artwork or copy instructions should be sent to and by noon on Tuesday, December 3.

The Shop Local publication will also feature editorial about the independent scene in the city centre and Newport as a whole, along with a directory of independent businesses in the BID area.
