Business is Booming in Ramsbottom thanks to new town guide.
30,000 new 'Visit Ramsbottom' guides promoting local businesses will be distributed across Lancashire and Greater Manchester to encourage people to visit the vibrant and bustling market town.
Ramsbottom Farmers Market
The new guide contains information about local shops, art galleries, local attractions and restaurants and café's including the award winning Ramsons and recently opened Chocolate Café.
The leaflet also details forthcoming events in the town including the farmers market which takes place on the second Sunday of every month, Saturday Country Markets, the September World Black Pudding Throwing Championships and the Christmas Markets.
Over recent months six new businesses have opened in Ramsbottom and many offer specialist services such as bespoke holidays from Designer Travel on Prince Street, home interiors from the Hidden Jem on Bolton Street or an unusual gift from the Enchanted Cave on Smithy Street or Little Treasures on Bolton Street.
Another new business is Di Buon Gusto, a delicatessen, run by Liz and Tony Faulkner who also owns Faulkners, the Grocer's on Bolton Street. The traditional deli will offer a range of Italian and French produce along side locally sourced items such as Cumbrian chorizo and salamis together with a selection of fine artisan cheeses. The deli will also stock a range of food to suit special dietary requirements.
Liz says "It has been a life long ambition to own a high quality deli and I hope that Di Buon will compliment the other good food establishments in the town".
The leaflet is aimed at encouraging locals to use Ramsbottom to visit some of the new businesses, as well as attracting visitors from further a field. The leaflet is being distributed locally through Bury Council outlets, Tourist Information Centre and at the East Lancashire Railway stations.
The leaflet has also been sent to Tourist Information Centres, hotels and visitor attractions across Greater Manchester and East Lancashire. For those visiting from further a field the guide contains information about public transport routes and a pocket sized map of the town centre.
