Independent retailers are the lifeblood of UK high streets, offering specialist products and service, knowledge and passion for their community.

Shopping at an independent retailer supports local traders and in turn, the local economy, enabling local businesses to prosper and grow.

Did you know? for every £1 spent with a local, independent business, between 50p-70p circulates back into that local economy. Shopping online or in corporate, out of town retailers only generates around 5p back into the local community.
