Reasons to support Local Business

  1. More Competitive than Amazon & Ebay: Small shop owners can be flexible on price in a way most big stores can’t. It’s often possible to get up to 20 per cent discount and sometimes to save up to half price if a small shop really wants to shift stock.
  2. Regulars get perks: Local businesses get to know you personally, so you may find you get freebies, a “thank you” gift voucher to spend at Christmas or even credit when you need it.
  3. Save time and money with better customer service: Local stores rely on their local reputation. You may even be dealing with the owner directly, making customer service simpler and quicker.
  4. Keeping cash local boosts your community: You’ll be investing money back into your neighbourhood.
  5. Local can be better value: Local shops cut out the middleman and if they are selling what they make direct, prices could even be cheaper.
  6. You don’t buy what you don’t need: Small businesses stock fewer items, so you won’t be tempted to splurge on extras.
  7. Save on parking: Many councils have allocated an hour’s free parking near small stores. Check what your council offers.
  8. Cash in: Shoppers paying with an American Express card will get a £5 statement credit each time they spend £10 or more at participating small businesses from tomorrow until December 17.
