Think, Shop, Buy Local This Christmas
It’s been a difficult year for the county’s businesses so we’re encouraging Shropshire’s residents to ‘Think, Shop, Buy Local’ this Christmas, and help give our traders, our towns, and the local economy a real boost.
To encourage people to support our local shops and businesses, parking will be free in all Shropshire Council car parks between 11am and 6pm from 3 December to 17 January. We’re also putting social distancing measures in place in many town centres to help people to safely visit our towns.
Now we’re encouraging you to think, shop and buy local in the coming weeks.
|Did you know that research shows that if every adult in Shropshire spent £3.80 a week in local shops rather than with international retailers online, it would boost the county’s economy by £1 million a week, or £4 million before Christmas?|
As well as asking you to ‘think local’ when doing your Christmas shopping, we’re also promoting some of the special activities and promotions the county’s towns and businesses are putting on in the run up to Christmas.
You can find out more below.
