Businesses in King’s Lynn are being urged to join in with an initiative to entice shoppers with £5 offers.

Discover King’s Lynn wants the town’s independent businesses to join in the nationwide Fiver Fest next month.

A spokesman said: “It’s a chance for independent businesses to use their collective power to encourage people into our town centre, to say thank you to customers who supported them during testing times, and to prove once again that the small guys can compete.”

The idea is that £5 special offers make it easier for customers to support the high street.

The spokesman said: “If every adult in King’s Lynn spent £5 per week in their local businesses, instead of online, it would be worth an extra £8.3m for the local economy per year.”
