Our excellent candidates for Twydall Hazel Browne and John Lloyd are visiting local shops in Twydall ahead of Small Business Saturday on 1st December. John and Mark Prenter (our third candidate for Twydall) will also be out this Saturday talking to businesses and customers about the future of small business in Tywdall and Medway.
As well as being a candidate for the upcoming local elections in May, Hazel is a small business owner and therefore understands the delights and challenges of being an entrepreneur.
Customers said they value having these small businesses in Twdall, and much prefer the personal service and competitive pricing in comparison to big chain stores.
Hazel and John visited M&J Pet Store in Twydall, which has an incredible range of products and a friendly atmosphere. The knowledgeable staff can help cater for the individual needs of a variety of pets and their owners, it’s a great place to find Christmas gifts for animal lovers, and they sell a range of products for wild birds.
SAS Mobility shop has lots of gadgets and advice to make life easier for anyone with mobility problems. They also have aids and gadgets for all around the house that will make great Christmas gifts.
They also provide a repair service in your own house if required. This is the kind of personal and compassionate service that is difficult to come across with larger and online businesses.
Both shops also have their Christmas decorations up, so no need to wait for the tree to be switched on to get in the Christmas spirit!
There are loads of fantastic small businesses operating in Twydall and across Medway, so go off the beaten path this Saturday and explore your local small business. You can also Facebook, Tweet, or Instagram pictures of yourself supporting your local small business with the hashtag #SmallBizSatUK.
