Janet Esam, manager of our Linkage Boutique Charity Shop in Carter Gate, Newark is making a great name for herself, and Linkage.
This weekend Janet is leading an event to attract extra trade to the Carter Gate area of the town. Independent shop keepers on Carter Gate are holding their own Christmas marketing to remind shoppers of what is on offer just a stones throw away from the main shopping area.
Janet, who has gathered support from a range of traders says:
“This weekend the Newark Christmas Market is happening in the Market Place. Although Cater Gate is in the town centre, it’s not where all the action is anymore. We have a lot of loyal customers at the Linkage Boutique Charity shop but we would love to have more! I wanted to create an event to extend the Christmas Market and bring people to this part of town. We have some wonderful independent shops here that offer a great range of items.”
Shops involved in the event so far include the Linkage charity shop, Flower Time (florist), Simple Sweet (traditional and American sweet shop) Honey Trap Lingerie, NvUs Cards, K&H Sports, The Curtain Mill, Meander and Mooch (arts and crafts shop), Yvonne (homeware shop) and Belhams Bar and Bistro.
As well as street stalls, festive refreshments and a raffle with some fantastic shopping voucher prizes, Linkage Charity Shop is offering 10% off all items on Sunday.
The Linkage Boutique Charity Shop is now one of three Linkage Charity shops which have raised thousands of pounds for the charity since opening. We get a fantastic range of vintage, designer and high quality items donated to us so are definitely worth a visit if you are in Newark at the weekend.
