Support S-O-T

When we say we are unashamedly independent, we mean it...

Art-Dpt-Stk is totally, 100%, bonafide independent, and is run by two people who share a passion for Stoke-on-Trent and its economic recovery. That's where you come in....

According to research by the Federation of Small Businesses, spending with local small independent firms can double the money going back into the local economy. Research has concluded that for every £1 spent with a small or medium-sized business (SME) 63p was re-spent in the local area compared to a maximum of 40p in every £1 spent with a larger business.

So, on average an extra 23p in the £1 spent in Stoke-on-Trent stays in the local economy. That means more jobs, more choice, more investment opportunities and more of a whole lot more for Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire. We don't see the down side.

The Cultural Quarter in Hanley is a vibrant example of what we can do to the local business landscape if we take the opportunity to support local independents. We aren't talking about multinationals, off-shore investors or chain stores... we mean real Stoke folk who want to make a living and contribute to our local economy.

Cultural Quarter Hanley

Only with your help will Stoke-on-Trent continue to recover and become a thriving destination for us all to enjoy. We hope that you will see and feel the benefits of shopping with local independent businesses. Invest in your future.
