Sunder Sandher Talks Rates in Store with Local MP

Award winning independent retailer, Sunder Sandher, has met local MP, Chris White, in his store to discuss some of the key issues that have been affecting his business ahead of the election in May.

Sunder talked to Chris White MP about the savings that he had recently made on his business rates by going through the Rates Bill line by line and making sure it matched up with his store. Through attention to detail alone, Sunder reclaimed over £4,000 in overpaid business rates.

During the visit, Sunder also raised concerns about safety on the road outside his store, which despite featuring two schools, is still subjected to cars frequently exceeding the 30mph speed limit. Mr White MP pledged to look at the issue with the council, and suggest measures to ensure the safety of school children in the area.

Association of Convenience Stores Chief Executive, James Lowman said: “Sunder’s work, both in store and in the community, provides a great example for retailers across the country. We urge all independent retailers to get in touch with your MP and arrange a store visit to show them the work you are doing in store, and your crucial role in the local community”.
