My Summer Rant and Rave

We are all aware that footfall is a key factor in the performance and survival of the independent high street, and how much of a struggle smaller businesses have in such a competitive online market. However Neil, founder of from you to me and his team are passionate about creating reasons for consumers to visit brick and mortar retail premises.

The Wiltshire based company, who are publishers of award-winning memory, pregnancy, activity journals and gift books, are giving independent retailers the opportunity to increase footfall by supporting their eight week My Summer Rant & Rave campaign.

 The My Summer Rant & Rave campaign also creates consumer engagement, asking competition participants to attend their local independent stockist to return their completed entries. Plus all participants will be entered into a prize drawer.
