The likely range is endless, and could involve fresh, local food produce, books by Spanish authors, arts and crafts on stalls, or even fashion, shoes and cosmetics by world-famous brands that just happen to be from Spain.

Although the focus is on 'local' and 'sustainable', any retailers can take part in 'Spanish Friday' and use the logo to advertise the fact – which includes a hashtag – provided what they sell has been made nationally.

As well as reduced prices, participating shops will be advertising #SpanishFriday on their usual channels, such as their own websites or social media profiles, or even just in the windows of their fixed premises.

Chief executive of the firm ES Fascinante – one of the key companies behind the campaign creation – Valentina Suárez-Zuloaga, says the main aim is to promote Spain's wares in general, but also to raise the profile of small local retailers.
