#Repost @sixsevensix Words from @lunaandcurious .. "For over ten years we have been part of a thriving community of independent retailers here in Shoreditch and Hackney. These small businesses are now threatened by business rates increases. Ours have doubled and we are now classified as a medium business so are no longer eligible for rate relief, this is based on the rateable value. Not the amount of employees or turnover. But this is bigger than just us, it's about keeping communities vibrant and not only affordable by big businesses. If you think this is important please sign the @east_end_trades_guild petition link is in the bio." Show your support & sign!
Support the small traders before the streets of Shoreditch become bland and cloned with High Street stores peddling the same shit across the globe
