British Independent Retail Association offers retailers 3 months FREE Membership
To support independent retail businesses during the Coronavirus outbreak, Bira are providing UK independent retail businesses with temporary membership of the Association for three months for a nominal fee of £1, £5 or £10, all proceeds of which will be donated to the Rainy Day Trust. Any UK independent retailer can sign up for membership until Tuesday 30th June 2020 and that access can be used for the next three months.
Free Temporary Membership Support Package
This temporary membership is being provided to give retail businesses access to nearly all our membership benefits and use what they need to help them to get through some horrendously difficult months ahead, including the ability to quickly sell your products online and educational content to help you to market online.
Important: Access to our Bira Legal telephone support service is available through this temporary membership package, however legal expenses cover is only available to fully paid Bira members.
We are working with Ellis Whittam, our legal partner and other partners, to provide a range of guides and document templates relating to employee safety, home working, risks assessments, and other resources through the Bira website and through our new Corona Hub. Our membership team is also ready to accept calls if retailers have any questions at all, so even if you cannot find what are looking for on the Bira website, give us a call and we’ll help to the best of our efforts. Finally, please be aware that due to extreme call volumes, we may need to restrict telephone access from time to time over coming weeks.
