It’s coming up to what should be a beautiful Easter Bank Holiday…. Fuel prices are at an all-time low, pubs, clubs bars and restaurants all shut their doors to the public without knowing when they will re-open. Parks are closed, beaches are deserted… all while shoppers flock to the big supermarket chains to stockpile, pasta, toilet roll and tins of tomatoes, forgetting about the little guys – smaller businesses and brands, many of which are struggling during these times of uncertainty but are all trying to find innovative ways to continue to serve their customers.
#StockUpSmall is a brilliant initiative devised by Joe the founder of Real Handful Snacks alongside his wife Carly. Their aim is to help small brands survive and ride the waves of the next 6 months by encouraging the public to #StockUpSmall and buy online.
Micro businesses make up for 96% of the businesses in the UK so it’s vital we support them any way we can. This is why Ultimate have put together a list of the customers who will benefit so much from this amazing initiative, as always we endeavour to help all of our customers any way we can.
