Backed by UK brands
Founder & CEO at OneStock
The pandemic has impacted all our lives and forced us to reconsider our priorities, including the way we shop. At OneStock, we have been working hard to develop innovative shopping options that keep consumers safe while enabling retailers to continue trading. With Christmas fast approaching and lockdowns being lifted, it is time for us all to support the retail industry or risk losing the High Street as we know it. The #SaveShops movement encourages consumers to support participating British brands, protecting the future of shops and the millions of jobs they sustain. We wanted to do something positive before it's too late!
Brand Director at Crew Clothing
2020 has been a disruptive year for us all, and we’re proud to support an initiative which highlights the importance of British high street shopping, and the livelihoods which depend on it. Our stores and the employees who work in them play an integral role in their local communities, and the #SaveShops movement is an important opportunity to ensure this continues ahead of the Christmas season.
Consulting Partner at Jigsaw
This is a fantastic initiative in what has been an extremely disrupted year. Our ecommerce website continues to be open and we are looking forward to welcoming our customer’s back to each of our locations with open arms in December. These are more than just places to shop, each one plays an important & unique part in being part of a real community hub. Let our doors open safely so we can listen, support, serve and add a little bit of Christmas joy.
Group Commercial and Business Development Director at Ted Baker
As our industry continues to face challenges in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, it is important that British retailers come together to ensure our customers can shop safely and our stores can stay open. Ted Baker fully supports the #SaveShops initiative. Working together, we can protect the High Street and the livelihoods of those working directly in retail, as well as those employed in the wider economy that we all depend on.
Global Retail Director at Reiss
We are so excited to re-open all of our UK stores this week. For our retail teams, our stores are their second home and they have really missed the special connection they have with our customers during the closure period. We are very much looking forward to welcoming our teams and customers back and making this Christmas shopping period extra special this year. We understand the very important part stores play in people’s lives and within the community so we are extremely supportive of the SaveShops initiative. Throughout this challenging period Reiss has remained committed to our global store expansion with 18 new sites opened so far this year, with a further 21 to open by Easter 2021. For Reiss, this is about saving our shops, and it’s about profitably growing our shops in order to secure their future!
Retail advisor, Former Manager Director at Whistles
I’m proud to support the #SaveShops movement. Having enjoyed a lifetime working in retail myself, we must now come together to support our local shops and protect the livelihoods of all our shop workers. Going to the shops is woven into the fabric of our culture and reopening the shops for peak trade will ensure our high streets retain the vibrancy and energy of our towns and cities.
Founder & CEO at Jojo Maman Bébé
Specialist high street retailers are part of the local community, offering advice, convenience, empathy and support. Human beings are sociable creatures and retreating into a virtual world is deeply worrying. The rise in loneliness and mental health concerns should be considered in any decision to close essential stores such as JoJo which offers product and fashion for pregnant women, new parents, infants and children.
CEO at Clekt
We will never replace the experience of shopping. It’s an opportunity for brands to showcase their identity and for their customers to connect physically and emotionally in a way that can never be recreated online. Instead, retailers will increasingly look to leverage the data creation opportunity that stores provide and combine with other data sources to generate the best possible omnichannel brand experience for their customers. Shops will live on!
Senior Advisor, Mentor and ex-CEO at Hobbs
I think it is important to support all initiatives that remind customers of the pleasure of shopping, wherever and however they choose. The omnichannel nature of retailers’ efforts mean that customers can choose how they want to engage with the brand, whether for inspiration, transaction, fulfilment or return. Retailers have invested well and intelligently to make the experience as easy and seamless as possible and an initiative that reminds customers of this is very important.
COO at ME+EM Ltd
It is a very noble initiative which we are happy to support
