10,000 votes cast for Darwen's best shop
2:51pm Friday 16th August 2013 in News
DARWEN’S MP was celebrating after 1,000 votes were cast in his competition to crown Darwen’s best independent shop.
The competition, launched by Jake Berry and running until October 4, asks Darreners to vote for their favourite independent retailer. It has been supported by local trade organisations ISSL Web Design and Orbital Design and Print.
Every voter is entered into a raffle to win a £50 voucher and prizes for the winning shops include professional marketing sessions and a tour of Parliament and lunch with Mr Berry.
Mr Berry said: “This competition is a small way of letting our local retailers know how much we appreciate and support them. In Darwen we are really lucky to have many wonderful and unique independent shops which are the lifeblood of our communities.
“I am delighted local people have really got behind the competition.”
