THIRTY town traders left the comfort of their stores to set up shop on the town’s streets as part of a Love Ormskirk event.
The Inside Out day saw firms given the chance to promote themselves as stall holders for the day on Friday, September 28.
Each business was given their own space to promote themselves and sell their products and services.
The idea behind the day, supported through funding from West Lancs council, was to make town shoppers and new students at Edge Hill more aware of what the town’s traders had to offer according to Katie Givens, Love Ormskirk team leader.
And the team now hopes to hold further Inside Out days following the success of the first one.
Katie said: “Inside Out will hopefully become a regular event, so those who didn’t manage to do it this time or weren’t aware of it will be able to take part next time.
“The feedback from all the businesses who attended Inside Out has been amazing. “Everyone was really pleased they did it and felt they generated a lot of awareness and further business from it. “Events like Inside Out are a fabulous way to promote your business and a break from the norm.”
Meanwhile, West Lancs MP Rosie Cooper has added her support as a town team partner to a bid for £10,000 from the Department for Communities and Local Government as part of the ongoing Portas Review project.
The application required the support of the lead group of the town team and the local council, along with the MP.
Ms Cooper said: “I am delighted to add my name to this bid as part of the Our Town First Programme. The Love Ormskirk team has done an excellent job.”
