Sunderland BID has a long-standing partnership with Great Annual Savings Group (GAS), which has used its expertise to save businesses money on everything from insurance to utilities.
Despite rocketing fuel prices meaning there are fewer deals available, firms can still benefit from professional advice and support.
Gas already has around 500 business customers in the city and the relationship with the BID means members can benefit from their expertise.
Phil Andrew, partnership director at GAS said: “The cost of living crisis has partially been fed by the cost of commodities increasing, which has a major impact on businesses, but they do not get the same levels of protection as households and it’s essential they make the right decisions with their procurement.”.
