Altrincham is well known for its hive of independent businesses which keep the area buzzing with new and interesting places to shop, eat and discover new things in. Without the huge marketing budgets of larger chains it can be difficult to get their name out there - and that's where the Indy Alty card comes in.
Started by friends Sean Lyall and Peter Milligan, Indy Alty is a new membership and discount card created to support these local, independent businesses in Altrincham and the surrounding area. You only have to visit the website to find a directory of independents who have all teamed up to offer a collective discount on the card.
‘We want to create a culture in Altrincham where Indies are the go to. They’re what makes the town unique, it’s such a hive of creativity around here. However, without the marketing budgets of the big chains, it can sometimes be difficult to become established. The market has put the town on the map, but there’s so much more to Altrincham, and we wanted to offer an incentive for people to get out there and rediscover it.’ – Sean Lyall, Indy Alty.
