Follow the Tenner Trail and grab yourself a local bargain!

It’s that time of year again! Totally Locally Crickhowell have organised a ‘Tenner Trail’ in support of the town’s Walking Festival which takes place from 28th February to 8th March.

Forty six of Crickhowell’s independent shops, businesses and artisans have created £10 deals which will be available during this period, ranging from lunches, cream teas, high street goods, gifts and services – the offerings are incredibly varied, ensuring that everyone really can grab a bargain. The trail also gives you the opportunity to try something new.

So why specifically a £10 deal? Well, there’s a bit of maths that says if you spend £10 in a local shop that sells stuff from local producers, the amount of money that goes back into Crickhowell’s economy can total over £50! Local independent businesses are also far more likely to use other local firms than any of the big national giants – it’s what makes them tick and they know the true value of keeping it “Totally Locally”. It’s also a lot easier!

The more everyone spends within our area the stronger our economy grows, which means more jobs, better facilities, a vibrant town centre and a nicer place for us all to live. If you compare this with buying online and outside the area – where none of the money comes back into the Crickhowell economy – it really seems to make sense. Add to this a smaller impact on the environment due to less transportation, and you have good reasons for keeping your purchasing Totally Locally.

Only by following the money trail do you get a true sense of the knock-on effects of buying Totally Locally Crickhowell. It takes you in all kinds of directions, ping-ponging from groceries and clothing, to tradesmen and accountants – each time adding to our economy. The trail is staggering.
