Why shop local?
There are many benefits to shopping locally such as:
Unique products and shops
In Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, we have such a wide variety of independent shops that you won't find anywhere else and that give our communities great character. Shopping locally can also provide a much more personal service.
We are proud to have some truly individual, specialist, one of a kind businesses in our area and it's so important that we do our bit to support them online and gain a unique product or experience at the same time.
Improves local economy
Through supporting our local shops you kno where your money is going - back to our communities. Through helping local businesses, there is the potential for more jobs to be created and to help the area recover.
Reduces environmental impact
Local shops and businesses tend to source their goods locally which helps to reduce their carbon footprint.
Promotes community spirit
We are proud of where we live and we hope you are too. Through supporting our local businesses we are supporting our communities and helping them to thrive through this difficult time.
