Late night shopping across the town’s independents throughout December
Nailsworth is bringing back Festive Fridays for another year to give people the chance to shop after work, without kids, or simply when all the Christmas lights are sparkling on each Friday night in December before Christmas – 10th & 17th until 8/8.30pm.
Becca & Chris Williamson who run the independent store, Truce on Fountain Street instigated the late-night Christmas shopping initiative in 2020 when things were particularly tough for the high street following lockdown in November to try and help the town and encourage people to shop small and locally. 2021 has been another challenging year for retailers so by offering extra convenient times to shop, the hope is people will avoid just turning to the big online retailers and enjoy browsing their local high street instead, helping to keep it going this Christmas.
Pulp is offering free face painting & mulled wine- Betty & Beatties are providing free mince pies & fizz- Qetty at No. 1 are giving out free champagne & chocs- Tonic is doing 20% off clothing & footwear and this Friday there is also the annual Christmas market, visiting Santa, live music & street food happing from 2.30 until 9pm
Together with the vast array of unique independent stores across Nailsworth, Truce are looking forward to welcoming visitors near and far for a little extra festive cheer.
