Today saw Caroline Lucas officially open the Brighton Pilot Store for hiSbe.
Unique and vibrant small businesses such as hiSbe are vital to Brighton and Hove’s economy. As well as forming part of community life, they provide valuable services, and jobs for local people.
The official hiSbe launch took place on Small Business Saturday, a campaign that encourages people to shop locally and support small businesses in their communities.
The campaign is supported by the Federation of Small Businesses, with Chairman John Allan describing it as “an excellent moment to celebrate the contribution that the smallest firms make to local communities and the national economy.”
We’re absolutely thrilled to be opening a supermarket which we hope is going to change people’s shopping habits in Brighton and beyond. The launch has been three years in the making and has come at the perfect time to coincide with Small Business Saturday.
We’re looking forward to meeting our new customers and people who have supported us, and can’t wait to offer fairly priced and fairly produced food.
Ruth Anslow, hiSbe co-founder
