WHY SPEND LOCAL?

The businesses that make up our local high streets, offices, business parks and industrial sites, along with the thousands of self-employed traders and entrepreneurs are all essential to the future of our towns and villages.

They account for over 90% of the employment in this area, create choice for our community, make our high streets unique, are 100% invested in the area, spend money with other local businesses and add so much to the wellbeing of the Northern Lincolnshire community.

BE LOYAL TO LOCAL

As slowly but surely the country starts to ‘unlock’ it has never been more important to recognise the importance of supporting the local economy.

North East Lincolnshire Council and the areas leading Business Support organisation E-Factor Group have joined forces to send out a very simple request…

Be Loyal to Local.

Not because of simple sentiment, but because if every adult spent on average just £1 extra a day in a local business, (rather than elsewhere), it would generate over £44 million pounds a year for the local economy, create more jobs, provide more variety.

It would also improve our high streets, encourage others to start up a business, and help build an even better future for this area. If every business increased the number of local suppliers they use, the impact would be even greater.
