Knaresborough Chamber – Survey Results

A survey of local businesses was carried out by the Knaresborough Chamber of Trade to assess the readiness and thoughts of business owners as Knaresborough comes out of lockdown. From the 24 responses received the picture is not all of despondency and gloom, but rather of investing in bringing back their businesses stronger than ever. Indeed, a quarter of businesses reported higher than pre-COVID footfall and a third said that takings were also higher. You can also be sure of a spruced up experience as about two thirds of business either did a deep clean or redecorated and improved their premises – or both.

We can be proud of our local businesses who certainly didn’t put their feet up during lockdown. Innovations including online trading and undertaking training to improve their prospects both featured highly in the responses. In addition, local independents will continue to offer many of the facilities started during lockdown to provide the best possible service to residents and visitors to the town.

Local community organisations including the Knaresborough Chamber and Knaresborough Connectors were pivotal in keeping the town and it’s residents abreast of what products and services were available, pushing the #shoplocalstaysafe message and through #Knaresboroughunlocked provided a range of initiatives designed to support social distancing for businesses, customers and the town in general as the lockdown was eased.

You can see the full results of the survey HERE.

Coronavirus and the Knaresborough Business Community

Firstly can we say how immensely proud we are of the business and community response to this crisis we are currently facing. We also know that many business owners have had to make great personal and professional sacrifices in recent weeks and our thoughts are with those who have been asked, or chosen, to temporarily close. We know how heartbreaking this is.

Our thoughts are with the whole Knaresborough business community at this time and please know that you are not alone. We are all in this together and we will pull through. If anyone feels that they need to talk to someone, there are members of Chamber who can help.

We know it’s hard when there is so much to process, but if you are no longer able to trade, remember the importance of staying in touch with your customers during this difficult time. Social media is a great way of doing this and many people will be spending more time on here than normal. Like, comment and share other businesses posts too, so that we are all supporting the wider Knaresborough business community.

We are supporting local businesses by listing them on our website during lockdown, both members and non-members.  Check out the businesses which are still open for business here.  If you would like to be included please email hello@knaresboroughchamber.org

For anyone needing advice, the Government are updating advice and information for businesses on their website daily. https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response
