Marlborough’s independent traders launch Easter Egg-stravaganza

Easter egg hunters Finn McCracken Dunn (7) and sister Abby (10)Easter egg hunters Finn McCracken Dunn (7) and sister Abby (10)Twenty of Marlborough’s independent shoppers have come up with an egg-cellent way to boost trade this Easter.

An town-wide Easter egg hunt send children on a trail around Marlborough’s independent retailers.

By collecting a sticker from each participating outlet, children can collect a free Easter egg from Ducklings toy shop. And will be entered into a prize draw to win a special chocolate egg.

Toy shop owner Colin Pattison said: “It’s a great way to encourage children - and their parents - to visit Marlborough’s independent retails.

“They don’t have to spend any money to get their sticker, but for some people it’s a first introduction to a shop they might want to spend some money in - now or in the future.”

The initiative is supported by the Support for Independent Retail Campaign and Action for Market Towns.

The printing of the trail maps, which have been delivered to St Peter’s School and are also available at Ducklings and the library, was supported by Marlborough Chamber of Commerce and estate agent Smiths Gore.

The promotion runs until Monday, April 21.

The participating retailers are:

  •  Mustard Seed
  • Kit Stone
  • Youngs of Marlborough
  • Acceler8
  • Mercer’s of Marlborough
  • Cosy Bean Coffee Lounge
  • The India Shop
  • Fair Isle
