Stockton Business Improvement District – or BID for short – is a partnership between town centre businesses and organisations with the ultimate aim of making a difference in Stockton town centre.
It represents around 400 businesses, services and independent retailers providing support, help and advice on a range of matters.
Covid-19 has thrown up many challenges for retailers, especially in a High Street environment which was already changing and evolving.
The BID has been working to support its members through the pandemic and as they re-open by providing them with the guidance, advice and help they need.
This is the first of a regular bulletin from BID manager Jason Maxwell containing advice and guidance on the changing coronavirus situation, lockdown easing measures and re-opening.
