Let's Celebrate The Service Champions in Retford

“The service you do for others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.”

Like most of us, small businesses have had it tough over the past five months. And their fight is a long way from being over as they work to overcome the challenges Covid-19 has thrown down.

The social distancing measures have meant reduced capacity in their shops, more expenses going on PPE and safety equipment and less footfall.

As a small business operator, I use local businesses regularly, and I know the hard work, dedication, and commitment they put into serving our community here in Retford.

It’s not all doom and gloom though, because we can all feel empowered by helping those who are helping us.

Celebrate Great Service

Shopping locally is the best way to show your support, but there are also several other things you can do to make a difference and help businesses not just survive, but thrive.

We all know of shops and business owners who bend over backwards to help their customers. These are the shops or service providers where nothing is ever too much, and we’d miss them if they weren’t there, doing what they do.

So let’s celebrate them using these four simple ideas.

·         Give them a five-star Google review. Testimonials help local shops and services attract new clients.

·         Share your experiences on a Facebook group or forum. Let your friends and neighbours know when you receive outstanding customer service.

·         Give a thank you card. Being a small business owner can be a lonely place at the best of times, so let them know they’re in your thoughts. It’ll give them a morale boost.

·         Use them or lose them. The most important thing we can do if we want to ensure the future of businesses we love is to spend money with them. By keeping the pound local, we make our Retford community stronger and our future brighter.

Tag or name the businesses and individuals who you feel deserve recognition for their hard work and care.

Thanks for reading.

I’m always happy to help sellers, buyers, landlords and tenants
