SUFFOLK’S DJV BOUTIQUE, IPSWICH JOINS RANKS OF SMALL BIZ 100

ON 13th OCTOBER 2020 DJV Boutique based in Ipswich will be given a spell in the limelight as part of this year’s Small Biz 100, a national campaign highlighting some of the UK’s most inspiring small businesses.

Marking 100 days building up to Small Business Saturday on 5 December 2020, the Small Biz 100 provides a major profile boost to small businesses across the UK, particularly at this challenging time.

Showcasing a daily celebration of the Small Biz 100 through social media, the campaign aims to support and celebrate a vibrant range of small, community driven businesses across the UK.

DJV Boutique is a popular stylish boutique situated at 10 Cox Lane in Ipswich Town Centre. Since they launched in 2012 the fashion outlet has grown in popularity for those seeking inspiration in clothing lines, handbags and accessories. They also provide bespoke services such as styling packages and an online gifting solution. DJV Boutique will be placed in the spotlight on 13th October 2020 when they’ll be offering special offers online and in-store on the day and also launch their customer loyalty scheme.

Business Owner, Mandy Errington said: “It’s a huge honour and a privilege to be part of a wider network representing small businesses across the UK. The support at this time is invaluable and we’re excited about what lies ahead from our own standpoint and the collaborative efforts combined being part of Small Biz 100.”

Among the other firms being recognised are a family run florist in Bristol, a beauty salon in Inverness, and a wine school in Chester.
Michelle Ovens MBE, Director of Small Business Saturday UK, said:

“Congratulations to DJV Boutique for joining the Small Biz 100! This campaign highlights the amazing, positive impact small firms have on communities across the UK. Given the phenomenally tough time small businesses have had, and the special role they played supporting communities in lockdown, it’s vital we continue to support them as this crisis continues. This year’s Small Business Saturday is going to be the most important one yet, and were determined it will also be the best.”
Now in its eighth year in the UK, Small Business Saturday has grown significantly each year, with a record turnout of 17.6 million people choosing to shop small on the day last year, generating an estimated £800m.
