Your City of Independents Christmas Tote Bags

Salisbury Business Improvement District (BID) is delighted to announce that the City of Independents Tote Bags are back for the December shopping period and they’ve had a festive makeover!

This exciting initiative celebrates the invaluable contributions of independent businesses in Salisbury. As a symbol of support for these local enterprises, the campaign offers complimentary City of Independents tote bags to customers, ensuring they can shop and support their favourite independent stores in style during the run-up to Christmas. 

The City of Independents tote bags are designed to showcase the unique charm and vitality of Salisbury's independent business community. Featuring a captivating freehand one-line artist drawing of the Salisbury landscape, these bags serve as a visual representation of the essential role that independent businesses play in shaping our city. 

To claim their free tote bag, customers are invited to visit any of the 50 participating stores throughout Salisbury*. With a minimum purchase of £20, customers will receive a complimentary Festive City of Independents tote bag, subject to availability. The campaign runs throughout the entire month of December (while stocks last), giving customers ample opportunity to show their support for local independent businesses during this important shopping season. 

Susi Mason, owner of Casa Fina on the High Street for almost 40 years, expressed her enthusiasm for the Tote Bag Campaign, saying, "As a proud participant in the previous Salisbury Indies Tote Bag Campaign, I can very much attest to the positive impact it has on our business. The bags not only create a sense of community and pride among customers, but they also serve as a reminder of the importance of supporting independent businesses for the sustainability of our vibrant high street." 

Salisbury BID urges residents and visitors alike to seize this opportunity to support local independent businesses. By choosing to shop local and support independents, we can collectively contribute to the longevity and vitality of our high street, ensuring that Salisbury remains a thriving retail destination.
