Three months since the riots a major campaign across Birmingham to help boost businesses affected by the disorder has been extended.
The Backing Birmingham campaign features a free, special card, called the B Card, which gives Birmingham’s residents special offers at participating independent businesses.
Across Birmingham, more than 600 businesses are already taking part in the scheme, which was due to finish at the end of October. Now, due to this initial success, the Council is extending it to continue to support retailers and communities until the end of the year. Extra B Cards and retailer packs are being printed and the Council is calling for even more retailers and residents to get involved and make the most of their B Cards.
Participating stores get free ‘Backing Birmingham’ signs for their windows, as well as leaflets and posters to use to display their special offer for residents.
Any independent outlet who would like to find out more about the campaign can visit www.BackingBirmingham.com or call 0121 472 9009 for their free point of sale kit, while stocks last.
