A group of independent fashion retail businesses, who are here to provide support, encouragement, a broad shoulder and friendship in a safe and confidential environment. A platform to share ideas, campaigns, pressure to support our network, challenge when needed and to give a feeling of solidarity.

Going forward I can see this group will continue to be a great source of support and a sounding board. It’s just nice to feel part of a group of likeminded people with the same goals.

I joined Boutiques in Business in the first Lockdown. I’m not sure what our boutique would’ve done without them. Great team spirit, great advice, lots of learning and a lot of energy!

Joining BIB during the first lockdown brought relief knowing others were in exactly the same position. It is a great forum to discuss shared problems, seek advice or have a moan! All in the strictest confidence – invaluable!

Becoming a member of BIB after the shock of lockdown was invaluable in terms of support from others in the same position with similar businesses and goals. A sounding block, a leveller, a discussion room, a virtual meeting place. The knowledge and depth of experience of people within the group is vast and this can be accessed at any time. I’m proud to be a member.
