Shaping Portsmouth is working with businesses in Portsmouth as part of the Go Shop, Go Eat, Go Safe, Go Local campaign.
One of these businesses is the award winning, Creatiques bridal boutique in Albert Road, with over 27 local, national and international awards.
Like many businesses, during the lockdown period the owners have had to think outside the box and extend their offering with an online home fragrance company Bustle and Bertie.
Creatiques also work with many charities through in the local community such as QA hospital, helping add much needed equipment. This Christmas they are selling a charity candle with the profits going to support Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association.
We wish them all the best and thank them for their continued support.
Portsmouth City Council are also developing a festive offers section of their website to encourage customers to shop with our smaller independent businesses.
If you are able to offer customers a special festive offer or discount throughout the festive period let them know and they will include you in their festive offers listings.
This will also include a section to include businesses offering gift vouchers as Christmas presents and those offering a click and collect service.
If you want to be included please email email@example.com with your business name, any web links and details of your offer and/or if you offer gift vouchers and/or click and collect. PCC will aim to add you to the website within 2-3 working days.
