The popular Leopold Street butcher's shop has made the following appeal on its Facebook page.
"It's time to call on all residents of Nairn to visit your town centre more often please !! Our shops are disappearing fast ! With multiple supermarket chains available on our doorsteps and online shopping it's easy to see the lure of choice, convenience and sometimes knockdown prices but In my opinion it would be very easy to revive our town centres, please read on...
Supermarkets and online shopping are here to stay for the reasons I mentioned above, but if we ALL made a LITTLE effort to also pop down to the High Street every now and again can you imagine the effect that would have on local businesses ?
If EVERYONE in Nairn Bought ONLY one or two Kitchen appliances from the electrical stores in their lifetime, everyone spent only £30 or £40 a year in any of the butcher shops, everyone went to the bakers only 5 or 6 times a year, everyone went to the newsagents a few times, the veg shop, pet shop, travel agents etc etc..
I don't expect people to stop using supermarkets or online shops but instead to every now and again come down to your town centre and help keep Nairn a vibrant, bustling town with a good selection of shops with friendly staff.
To all those people who do use the High Street we truly do appreciate your custom because without you we would not be here so give yourselves a great big pat on the back. Hope to see you all soon and thank you for your time reading this.
