Business Boom expected for Mother’s Day

Following two years of trade affected by the pandemic businesses are forecasted to enjoy a strong Mothers' Day, according to the British Independent Retailers Association (BIRA).

With all legal restrictions firmly gone, businesses across the country will see the highest influx of cash from the public in two years with celebrations on 27 March, BIRA predicts.

BIRA believes this will be the kick the economy needs after two years of restrictions and its effect on local businesses.

Mother's Day 2020 took place just a few days before national lockdown measures came into play, with some already taking precautions and others no doubt opting to shop online.

Mother's Day spending equalled £1.23 billion 2020 and £1.34 in 2021 to total £1.34 billion in 2021, according to figures from Statista.

Andrew Goodacre, chief executive officer of BIRA, said:

"For the first time in two years, people can look forward to a more normal Mother's Day.

"Shops, cafes and restaurants will all be open for what is traditionally one of the busiest times of the year. As we approach this day, the independent retailers will be focused on selling those unique gifts to people."
