Denbighshire businesses offered the chance to appear in Christmas shopping video

With Christmas fast approaching businesses are being given the chance to take part in a festive shopping video.
As part of the #LoveLiveLocal campaign, Denbighshire County Council is looking for traders to feature in the clip which is being produced to highlight what the county has to offer shoppers. #LoveLiveLocal aims to get people to show support for local businesses by using the hashtag on Twitter and Facebook to promote good experiences they’ve had and promote products and services locally they have ‘loved’.
The Council is looking for businesses who would like to take part in the video, with scenes involving customers within a shop setting.
Councillor Hugh Evans OBE, Leader of Denbighshire, said: “It is hard to believe Christmas is on its way, but as a Council we are already preparing to help promote our local traders this festive period.
“As part of the Council’s work on developing the local economy we are helping to promote the great retail offer right here in Denbighshire.
“Not only do local businesses offer great value for money and a wide range of products, they also provide excellent customer service.
“I’d encourage as many businesses as possible to put themselves forward for the chance to be in this video so we can showcase our fantastic Denbighshire businesses.”
The video will appear online and will be shared on social media throughout the Christmas period to help promote shopping locally.
If you would like to take part in the video contact matthew.l.jones@denbighshire.gov.uk or 01824 706222.
