The last decade has seen Hinckley BID go from strength to strength, helping Hinckley to weather the global and national economic recession that has hit all UK town centres over the past 10 years. The BID team has fought valiantly against the national trend and kept Hinckley town centre’s vacancy rate well below the national average of 10%. It has also consistently battled to maintain healthy footfall figures in the town with some real success.
As a consequence of two very successful 5-year terms, local businesses voted to give Hinckley a third BID term (1 May 2019 – 30 April 2024), demonstrating that the BID maintains a high level of business support and enables us to organise major crowd-pulling town centre events.
Hinckley Town Centre has done better than most to weather the ‘retail’ storm. It has kept abreast of and utilised the latest information technology to enhance Hinckley’s digital high street offer. Our BID events have attracted over 100,000 additional visitors each year and rewarded them with superb entertainment and current and relevant information, utilising e-newsletters and social media to promote businesses and offers through the FREE BID Loyalty card.
We have also proactively advocated and lobbied on difficult issues, crucial to the smooth running of our town centre businesses, and we have developed great relationships with local partners, especially the Borough Council.
Ready to listen, inform and find solutions, Hinckley BID is always available to its 400+ member businesses.
Without a BID, Hinckley Town Centre would certainly be at a competitive disadvantage.
