Visitors urged to get a taste of what traders can offer in Tenbury
1:54pm Wednesday 30th January 2013 in News
DESPITE a hiccup that saw posters being put up on the morning of the event, shops in the town have staged the first Taste of Tenbury promotion of the year.
The initiative was started last year after boosting trade following the closure of the Teme Bridge in the early part of 2012.
But sadly the initiative has not managed to save one Tenbury business that was crippled by the closure.
Country Flowers has shut down after a struggle that saw business hit badly including the vital Valentine’s Day trade last February.
The Taste of Tenbury does not just involve food businesses but is intended to highlight the wide range of independent shops in the town.
Shop keepers take part in the initiative in different ways with some of them offering special reductions for the day.
Among the businesses taking part in the first Taste event of the year were a baker, specialist food hall, supermarket, pet shop, card shop and electrical retailer.
