Independent store shout out - November – Talking Tables UK Trade

Independent store shout out - November

Posted by on

This month we have been shining an extra spotlight on our fabulous independent stores. With Christmas coming and Black Friday having just passed it is a big month for spending and we believe a great time for everyone to show a little extra love to those small stores who are going above and beyond to provide customers with a great experience.

As a business concerned about people and the planet, we are opposed to creating overconsumption and encouraging people to make unneeded purchases. Last year a quarter of you said you regretted your Christmas Black Friday buys. That’s a lot of extra and unnecessary carbon as well as stress. So we joined Holly Tucker and her #ColourFriday campaign - encouraging you to celebrate the colour and creativity of your local independents.

Here are some of our favourite stores, go and show them some love!
