The Business Improvement District recently launched a brand new ‘Independent Retail’ map
in time for Independents’ Day UK weekend
Newbury Business Improvement District (BID) is thrilled to support the local independent retail sector with the launch of its brand-new Newbury Independent Retail Map.
The handy pocket map was launched online in time for Independents’ Day UK weekend on 2nd – 3rd July to help raise awareness of Newbury’s growing independent scene and to support the local independent retail sector.
Physical copies of the map have since been distributed in matching display boxes to the 44 independent businesses featured. The map includes a brief description of each retailer and also signposts to specialist markets that take place in the town centre. You can view the map online here.
Copies of the map produced by the BID are being introduced as part of a series of town centre maps for Newbury under the umbrella term ‘Newbury Town Trail Maps’. Newbury BID, the not-for-profit organisation behind the Visit Newbury brand, is happy to announce the theme for the next map in the series will be a Dog-Friendly Trail Map. This map will promote 26 dog-friendly hospitality venues across the town centre and highlight five prominent dog-walking routes within walking distance of the town.
The map will also highlight the location of dog waste bins in the town centre and its surroundings to discourage dog litter and to encourage dog-walkers to use the map on a regular basis. With National Dog Day 2022 coming up in late August, the map is expected to launch in time for this nationally recognised day for dog-lovers in West Berkshire and across the country.
The BID has also confirmed that the third map in the Newbury Town Trail Map series due to launch this year will be an up-to-date and reformatted version of the Vegan-friendly Map. First launched in October last year, the updated map is due to be released around the year anniversary of the initial launch and will come in the new fold-out pocket size format.
Kirsty Lemberger, Marketing Manager at Newbury BID, says:
Maps are available to collect across the town centre at most businesses featured on the map and from Newbury Library, West Berkshire Museum, and in the Old Town Hall.
