St. Phillip’s South is the Final Stop on the UPP ‘Small Business Pull-Up’

7

After sixteen weeks on the road, the ‘Small Business Pull-up’ will make its final stop in 2022, on Saturday 10th December. The tour will head to St. Phillips South, where the UPP will celebrate the success of this initiative in grand style.

 

The caravan will gather at Elvis in Freetown at 1:00 pm and patrons will “follow the music” to a number of small enterprises in Freetown, St. Phillips Village, Lyons, ending at the Bethesda Playing Field, where the UPP will host a festive ‘Small Business Jam,’ featuring Kutting Edge Band.

 

Since the launch of ‘Small Business Pull-up’ on 20th August, this mobile gathering has supported close to 300 small businesses throughout Antigua and has generated significant exposure for their products and services.

This fun, high-energy tour has also grown significantly as an effective way to build community pride.

It has become the highlight of weekend entertainment among many UPP supporters who come together to patronize eateries, bars, convenience stores and other enterprises.

 

Sherfield Bowen, UPP Candidate for St. Phillips South stated, “I am pleased to welcome the  ‘Small Business Pull-up’ to St. Phillip’s South to help boost sales and exposure for many small businesses in my constituency that are struggling.

Through our collective spending power, we can make a difference by supporting small businesses and help to rebuild the economy.”

 

UPP Political Leader, Harold Lovell, has declared  the ‘Small Business Pull-up’ initiative a huge success.

“I am amazed by the  large number of small businesses that we discovered.

There is tremendous potential for developing Community Based Tourism as a new tourism niche, by positioning our small businesses to showcase some of our culinary traditions and other customs and differentiate our tourism product.

We invite everyone to support our last ‘Small Business Pull-up’ to hear some of our exciting plans to continue to energize small businesses,”  Lovell said.

Since late August, this UPP-led initiative has highlighted the important role that small businesses play in driving the economy.

As many recover from COVID-19 pandemic disruptions, they are relying heavily on strong year end sales to help improve their bottom line.

  1. The Small Biz Pull up is a great initiative. There are so many businesses that are trying to establish themselves and all they need is a little help to take care of their family. I hope they keep it up.

  4. They heard what sounded like a firecracker. Shortly thereafter, Constable Charles went towards his vehicle which was parked in the vicinity of BOWEN’S OFFICE. He saw Bowen sitting on the steps of the building which housed his office. He saw Ms. Barthley lying on the ground not far from his motor car.

  6. Jumbee_Picknee says, “since, the UPP wants to and is #Pulling_Up small businesses in the community’s, and since, many are touting it as a huge success here are some suggestions, to really #Pull_Up a Commujity…

    A…introduce the BARTERING SYSTEM on a National level, whether through skills, goods or services. Fair/fare exchange in no robbery. Money is not always, the answer to everything.

    B…pick a Community and one deserving Application from said Community(income, wants etc and ALL LEGAL RESIDENTS, ABLP, Go Green, UPP, DNA, INDEPENDENTS are welcome to submit applications) place those Applications by numbers in a bag, and have a three year old from said Community, draw the winner.

    All applications/Applicants must already own property, small businesses included.

    Now, put a team in place from Project Managers to Helpers and do some real VOLUNTEER WORK.

    By the way, Grants and Funding are available to fund such. This would be a program similar to Habitat For Humanity!

    The Farming/ Agriculture Businesses can benefit to!
