MP urges shop own­ers to enter com­pe­ti­tion

Llanelli Star - - NEWS -

LLANELLI MP Nia Grif­fith is en­cour­ag­ing shop own­ers in her Llanelli con­stituency to enter the Best Small Shops Com­pe­ti­tion. The an­nual con­test cel­e­brates the cre­ativ­ity of small shops and the im­por­tant role they play in com­mu­ni­ties.

All shops en­tered into the com­pe­ti­tion will be pro­moted via an on­line In­die Retail Di­rec­tory, and the 25 short­listed will be in­vited to a re­cep­tion at the Houses of Par­lia­ment on Novem­ber 5 to meet their MP.

Com­pe­ti­tion judges will be look­ing for ev­i­dence of en­tre­pre­neur­ial spirit, in­no­va­tion and what they have done that will have a last­ing, pos­i­tive im­pact on their com­mu­nity.

Ms Grif­fith said: “This is a great ini­tia­tive to high­light the vi­tal con­tri­bu­tion small shops make to our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties. Whether it is pro­vid­ing unique prod­ucts or ser­vices, sup­port­ing com­mu­nity projects or adding to the char­ac­ter of an area, small shops are the lifeblood of our com­mu­ni­ties.”
