Cornwall based ‘The Contemporary Living Company’ gets a Twitter Boost from Theo Paphitis.

A Looe based firm has received a business boost from Retail Entrepreneur Theo Paphitis. Last week, Chris Reynolds, joint owner of The Contemporary Living Company, tweeted Theo about his business during ‘Small Business Sunday’ and was one of six weekly winners to gain a retweet by Theo to his 500,000 Twitter followers. The weekly initiative, set up by Theo in 2010, now has over 2500 #SBS winners and supports small businesses in the UK.

Business and retail entrepreneur and self-confessed Shopkeeper, Theo re‐tweeted Chris’s message to his almost 500,000 followers and as a result, The Contemporary Living Company has hundreds more twitter followers and extra orders for their unique products. They are also profiled on the #SBS website ( that is exclusive to all Small Business Sunday winners.

Chris said, “Well we’re super stoked to be named #SBS winners. Like just about anyone with a small business we work really hard and it’s so gratifying to get a bit of recognition.”

Small business champion and Ryman Stationery, Robert Dyas and Boux Avenue Chairman, Theo Paphitis, said: “We are thrilled to welcome new #SBS members every week and highlight just how important it is to support our small businesses here in the UK. My vision is that everyone who has ever won an #SBS re-tweet from me becomes part of a friendly club; like-minded individuals who can share successes and learnings. The website will also give a valuable profile to the winners chosen and I wish The Contemporary Living Company every success.”

Anyone looking for a re‐tweet from Theo should tweet him about their business on Sunday between 5 PM and 7.30 PM and include the hashtag #SBS. Six businesses are re‐tweeted every Monday at 8 PM and then invited to enter their profile on the new website, attend the annual #SBS networking event and take advantage of the networking opportunities.
