All will be putting on special £5 deals for the duration of the Fiver Fest campaign. Just look out for the posters around town and online promoting of all the Fiver Offers.

Paul Ambrose, Rochdale BID Manager, said: “The last National Fiver Fest was a huge success, with 41 towns and thousands of independent shops getting involved, and this time even more are joining in.

“We’re joining in with the Fiver Fest to introduce some great bargains for local shoppers, but also to showcase the town and the great shops and businesses we have here, and show how important independent high streets are to our communities and towns.



“The Fiver Fest promotes the message that ‘If every adult in Rochdale spent just £5 a week with their local independent shops and businesses instead of online or at the big supermarkets or chain stores it would be worth millions going directly into our local economy.

“On average, each independent business has around 12 local suppliers who are also often independent, family run businesses. So that £5 spent is re-spent locally as well, further helping the town. And the beauty of spending £5 is that it’s easy, guilt-free and pretty much anyone can do it.

“Tiny actions like this can make a huge impact when lots of people vote with their feet.”
