Re-Opened & Ready For Business
While some businesses have taken a real hit from the recent lockdown, others have found a way to diversify & thrive.
Could this be the time for independent businesses to make their mark again?
The Ultimate Party Shop - Cheltenham in Regent Street, Cheltenham says ‘As an independent trader we are lucky that we can pivot our business literally as we think of new services or products, which is something that large corporations just can’t do. To take advantage of this, we adapted to meet our customers’ changing needs by providing both a click and collect plus a home delivery service. This has proved particularly popular with parents and grandparents wanting to make their loved ones feel special.
‘Facebook and Instagram have been an essential path to stay in contact with our followers. Many families used interactive Zoom parties for socialising at comedy quizzes, birthday celebrations, gender reveals as well as baby showers and found inspiration to set the atmosphere from our ever- increasing range of balloon creations and posts.’
The newly re-opened retail store has been adapted as well. The interior accommodates all essential social distancing whilst making a stronger feature of their balloons, decor and comedy card ranges to fill the towns needs as other national brands falter. The exterior is also showing off some bright new colours which add a breath of fresh air and delight your eyes as you turn off the high street and stroll towards it.
Now, more than ever Cheltenham’s wonderful array of unique independent businesses will form the heart of our towns.
So, it’s time to really show your support and shop local – they can’t wait to have you back!
