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 firstname.lastname@example.org
