Businesses in York and North Yorkshire have been nominated as most loved as part of national Love Local Day.
The event recognises the UK’s most loved local businesses as well as those most loved within their local and wider areas. The event has been championed by ShopAppy.com – a digital platform and shop local campaign.
Thousands of nominations have poured in from across the UK over the last few weeks with a “massive increase” from 2020’s event. Many locals have cited the adaptation of their local businesses during the pandemic “as their lifeline”. Nominations for the love local day also highlighted friendliness, helpfulness and exceptional service that local businesses have provided during the most challenging times for local communities, high streets, markets, towns and city centres.
Dr Jackie Mulligan, founder of ShopAppy.com, said: “It has been a challenging last decade, none more so than this last year for our town centres and high streets, but we know there is tremendous love for local businesses in our communities. Love Local Day highlights the importance and positive impact these businesses have in the life of our communities and commercial hearts and how critical they will be to our social and economic recovery. It also shows them how much they are appreciated.”
The local businesses nominated as most loved are: Town End Farm Shop, ABV Events, Spring Dry Cleaners, Cooking Fantastic, Mitchinson Greengrocers, Thompson’s Butchers, Cross View Tea Rooms, Granny’s Kitchen, ZEN, G’s Taxis, Simply Devine, Beauty Within, Beauty Galore Artificial Flowers and Crafts of Thirsk.
