Refocus, Recover & Grow!
King's Lynn Business Support Package
2020 was tough on Town Centres and High Streets. Many of our businesses have been closed for long periods of time, open under severe restrictions, or trying to trade in new ways. King’s Lynn BID is committed to the success of your business and the town centre as a whole. We know that many of you will be re-visiting your business plans, trying to find more ways to minimise costs, keep your business alive, explore new ideas, so as to be ready to grasp the opportunities when the time is right.
Since its establishment the BID has made many friends in the local business professional community. We’ve approached them and put together a scheme to enable BID members to access professional advice to help their businesses survive and thrive the current situation.
