Independent businesses in Altrincham have teamed up to launch a new card giving holders access to a range of exclusive discounts and benefits.
Indy Alty, which launches today, is designed to raise awareness of the independent businesses across Altrincham and not just those in some of the higher footfall areas.
It’s all the idea of Sean Lyall, manager at Two Brothers Coffee on Stamford New Road, and his friend Peter Milligan, and is inspired by the success of similar initiatives in Liverpool and Birmingham.
Lyall said: “We want to create a culture in Altrincham where indies are the go-to. They’re what makes the town unique, it’s such a hive of creativity around here.
“However, without the marketing budgets of the big chains, it can sometimes be difficult to become established. The market has put the town on the map, but there’s so much more to Altrincham, and we wanted to offer an incentive for people to get out there and rediscover it.”
