Working for a better experience...
WHILE the BID team at Totally Stockport are working to give everyone who lives, works and comes to Stockport town centre an even better experience, it’s important that everyone across the borough of Stockport and beyond has the chance to know about all the great changes that are taking place here.
A recent survey of local people carried out in the ‘villages’ around Stockport told us who visits the town, how often they come and what they are doing when they arrive. It also gave us data of those who don’t visit regularly, their alternative destination(s) and what would encourage them to return.
This has helped inform and shape the BID’s Business Plan, including publishing a free, 20,000-circulation, quarterly magazine to keep everyone up to speed with what’s been happening, who’s in the news, what’s new and what’s planned for the future.
We had some terrific feedback following the first issue of Totally Stockport in May, including extensive shares via social media, not least by cover star James Blunt and his army of fans who have spread the Stockport word far and wide.
Don’t worry if you missed it, you can still read a copy online at totallystockport magazine.co.uk.
There’s been a lot happening in Stockport over the summer. We’ve added another four pages to the latest edition of Totally Stockport, 32 pages packed with news from around the town.
If you tasted the treats of the first Totally Foodie Weekend, strolled among the polished chrome at Stockport’s Classic Car Show in the Market Place or revelled among the revs of Roughley’s Bike show in St Peter’s Square, you may spot your face among the crowds.
Two recent additions to the blossoming Stockport dining scene - Where The Light Gets In and The Allotment Vegan Restaurant - are enjoying a total of eight nominations in the prestigious Manchester Food & Drink Awards and Matt Nutter tells us why he chose to open a unique, gluten-free, vegan restaurant in Stockport.
Stockport is also attracting new businesses – Hatters Coffee Co has homemade cakes to die for and Tramp’s vibrant hair studio is bringing a touch of Soho to Little Underbank.
