In January 2017, we set ourselves a (very high!) target of ensuring that 80% of possible £ spent would be with local suppliers by June 2018. At the time this was an extremely ambitious target, however we are very proud to announce that we have just reached 78% – almost there!! Our buying team have done amazing work in the local business community, meeting with suppliers individually and at local opportunity events such as ‘Meet the Buyer’ and ‘Find It In’. We’ve identified some amazing local companies, and are very pleased to be able to offer business opportunities to companies along the route of the Metro Tram installation.
