The It’s in Nottingham Home and Living campaign, organised by Nottingham Business Improvement District (BID) has just been launched.
Designed to encourage people to shop in Nottingham city centre for all their homewares, the initiative includes the production of a free 20-page magazine featuring products for the home and garden that are available to buy from city centre retailers; features on current interior design trends, the latest in home technology, tableware and garden products and ideas for sprucing up a bedroom, bathroom and children’s bedroom. 25,000 copies of the magazine have been produced and are being distributed to homes in Nottingham and to homeware retailers in the city. Copies of the magazine can also be picked up from Nottingham Tourist Centre.
There is a great competition in the magazine with the opportunity for one lucky person to win £1,000 of vouchers to spend at various participating homeware shops. Details can also be found online at www.itsinnottingham.com/home-living .

“Spring is traditionally a time when people spruce up their homes and the purpose behind this initiative is to encourage people to shop at our great range of homeware shops in the city centre,” said Geoff Williams, a director of Nottingham BID. “We organised this initiative for the first time last year and it was a great success. We hope that it once again inspires more people to come into the city.”
