Why shop at independents?

Although the internet may offer a variety of products which can be easily compared on price, there are ample amounts of reasons as to why shopping independent can be beneficial.

According to an article in the Daily Telegraph more and more of the British public are starting to shop at small independent retailers rather than at chained stores on the high-street. This may be due to the rise of young people taking a more ethical approach to the way they shop as more millennials are choosing small businesses rather than larger high-street brands.

Although the internet may offer a variety of products which can be easily compared on price, there are ample amounts of reasons as to why shopping independent can be beneficial.

Spending will boost the economy

According to Forbes magazine, by supporting local businesses you're creating more employment opportunities within your area. This means, that more money will be spent locally which can be pumped back into the community. Since Temprell opened its doors in 2003, it has consistently grown over the years, providing numerous careers specialising in jewellery in the Nottingham city centre.

It's unique

If you're someone that likes to be unique and stand out from the crowd, shopping at independent businesses means it is less likely that someone has the same item (it's not been mass produced). Here at Temprell, we pride ourselves on our uniqueness, offering one of a kind bespoke pieces of jewellery.

You can help build communities

Unlike chained stores on the high-street, independent businesses can offer a community value to your shopping experience. Without independents brands, communities often disappear as well. Here at Temprell, we like to value our customers and see them more like our friends. Building our little community through #yourtemprellstory enables customers to share their engagement and wedding stories with us. We love hearing from you, and without you, we would not be able to continue to deliver bespoke high qulity jewellery manufacture in Nottingham. You may have noticed over more recent years the increase in independent shops opening up their doors in the Nottingham city centre. This is due to Nottingham City Council supporting independent businesses like us to thrive in the city.
