NORTHWICH Business Improvement District is striving to support businesses in as many ways as possible during the current coronavirus outbreak.

With retailers and traders from all industries facing uncertainties, the BID says that it is working flat out to provide guidance and support, as well as promoting firms that are still open for business.

This involves taking steps to help businesses access correct and relevant information, while highlighting how customers can support local businesses that have diversified to continue trading.

“Over the last few days, we have been speaking to all of our businesses in Northwich to make sure they’re aware of all the measures that the Government has announced to support businesses through this difficult time,” said BID manager Jane Hough.

“We have created a dedicated Covid-19 support page on our website for businesses to access for key information and have produced a graphic highlighting key details of government schemes announced in recent weeks.

“We have also created a hub on our Visit Northwich website which lists the businesses that are still open and trading, so the people of the town can find these details in one spot rather than having to check each social media page.

“This will be updated on a regular basis, and I would urge businesses to get in touch with us if they aren’t currently on the list.”

Northwich BID also issued a reminder to businesses to contact the team if there are any messages that they would like sharing on social media.

“With over 10,000 followers across our social media platforms, we can help to promote information to a wider audience and we know how vitally important it is currently to still find a way to reach customers if possible,” Jane added.

“Moving forward, we will endeavour to keep our businesses informed on the latest developments regarding Covid-19 and will support them in every way that we can.

“I know that Northwich will bounce back in the future and can only praise the efforts of our businesses so far, who have shown their passion, dedication and selflessness in the face of the situation we all find ourselves in.”
