Why shop local?
Good for the local economy. Research indicates that for every pound spent with a local business, 63p stays within the local economy, compared to 40p with a national chain.
Good for the environment. Local shops sell products from local farmers, producers and craft people, therefore the delivery journey is shorter and has a smaller carbon footprint.
Good for the community. Shops are a valuable part of your community. Take the time to shop and get to know shopkeepers and fellow customers. Catch up with friends and meet new people.
Good for you. Locally produced food will be fresher, more seasonal and you will know where it comes from.
Find something a bit different. Enjoy the experience of visiting a variety of shops all offering something distinct or unusual.
