I LOVE MANCHESTER

Sorry for being quiet for a while. Lots has been going on and such but here is a little posty-wosty about a cool campaign that has taken over Manchester's retail districts. 

Post-riots (find out more about the riots in my When Twitter Backfires post) Manchester City Council and other organisations have embraced a campaign devised to get shoppers back into the city. We are a world of consumers... The campaign is an extension of the Visit Manchester initiative which prints 'I (love heart) MCR' on everything for tourists to buy a la New York. So, by popping a poster in your window, your shop participates. Easy peasey. What's more is that the WHOLE Manchester Metro Link tram service network was FREE today for shoppers to commute with financial ease. Bonus.

I went into town to have a looksee. (on a free tram no-less)
