Traders plea: “Buy local”

Businesses are working together to promote commerce.

Matlock Town Team and Transition Matlock will be holding a meeting for the Totally Locally campaign at Moca, in Dale Road, at 6pm on Tuesday, April 17.

The aim of the campaign is to remind people of what they have around them and urge them to make small changes in their routines, which will mean a big difference to their surroundings.

The group claims that if every adult in the Matlock area spent £5 a week with their local independent shops and businesses instead of with the big supermarkets or out of the area online retailers, it would be worth an extra £2.5 million into the local economy.

This in turn would lead to jobs and money for the town.
