As a business, it has always been in our interest to support our local showrooms around the UK. After all, they are selling our products to the end customer. But for us, it runs much deeper than just selling. We have a love for supporting all local business. It’s a local business, which keeps the high street alive. Local businesses are the lifeblood of the community.
Since Covid-19 manifested its ugly head last year, the high street has been hit with a devastating blow, which in some cases proved fatal for some businesses. Luckily things are improving now and the economy is bouncing back well, thanks to the successful rolling out of vaccines.
Getting back to
the new normal
Back in May last year, the “new normal” – was bouncing around the media, an expression, which irritated some, and exciting others. But things are improving now, we’re in a different place from where we were last May, which means “back to normal” is much more fitting than the “new normal” – back to normal, in a safe way is optimistic and positive and it will be key in helping drive sales and help businesses flourish.
