A Christmas plea from a local high street shop

Reading our local village forum yesterday, I came across this ‘plea from a local retailer’, but it could have come from any one of the thousands of community high street stores up and down the country trying to make a successful go at Christmas trading. It seemed a timely reminder for all of us shoppers as we head into Christmas to remember that we all have a choice where we shop and who we give our money to. Sometimes the options aren’t there, but for many of us, we have pop-up shops, #shoplocal campaigns, farmer’s markets and indie/sole traders right there on our doorsteps. Perhaps it’s time we gave them first dibs?

Good luck with your trading this weekend, from all of us at WBC

    We are totally spoilt here in London for brilliant shops, markets and pop-ups all over the place but the wonder is spreading across the UK. Shopping at a real shop offers so much more, I always get taught a little something that I would never learn in supermarket.
