We’ve all been there, needing something from the shop at the last minute, but how do you know which shop is still open? How do you know they sell what you need?

Why Shop Locally?
YourShopLocal has been born through a combination of wanting to encourage shoppers to use their local stores and help to retain a sense of community within local towns and villages. The interest we’ve received in YourShopLocal since the campaign first began is overwhelming and continues to grow as time goes on.
Many a time, shopping at convenience stores has been associated with inflated prices and an expensive way of life. From research conducted, after having taken into consideration extra costs of the petrol when driving to a supermarket, shopping locally actually works out as being more cost effective.
Many local convenience stores are now price-matching the larger supermarkets on every day essentials.
Furthermore, it goes without saying, that shopping with independent retailers, supports the local economy and retains a sense of community within your town or village.
4 Reasons to Shop Local:
1. Great deals – Independent retailers often compete on price with the big supermarkets.
2. Personal service – Your local convenience store wins hands down.
3. Supporting your community - Your local convenience store is part of your community and the money spent in it stays in your community.
4. It’s green! No car and no fuel required. A quick stroll and you’re there!
