The decline of the traditional UK high street is much reported, and often visible in boarded up shops and closing down sales.

Yet residents everywhere still want their neighbourhoods to have exciting places to eat and drink, independent shops, vibrant street markets, plus thriving entertainment, health, fitness and community hubs too.

There’s no question about the challenges all these types of businesses face today – and the need to regularly remind customers to use-or-lose them. So what is the solution?

Kentishtowner is ideally positioned to support these small but vital high street-level operators.

We’ve spent many years building a captive audience in and around NW5, NW1, N19 and N7 who genuinely trust us to inform them about the best places to go the area. These 75k regular readers are without doubt the perfectly targeted group of people for local companies to be promoting themselves to.

With that in mind, we’ve come up with a new set of commercial packages aimed at promoting these valued community businesses and helping them take advantage of our unique local platform.

Via the monthly Kentishtowner print edition, the daily website and then further across London via our linked network of other neighbourhood titles, we can offer affordable and measurably effective campaigns to generate new customers and remind existing ones to spend money locally rather than defaulting to online.
