Broxtowe has lots of independent shops selling everything that is lovely and local. Many businesses are still open and doing takeaways. Others are working hard behind the scenes, offering deliveries and click and collect. They are offering you their support – and they need yours in return.
If you want some quick reasons to say hello to our high street, then here they are just a few...
1. Supporting the high street helps us all
63p of every £1 spent in an independent shop goes back into the local economy. Right now, this is more important than ever.
2. It fosters local jobs, for local people
You will be helping people to keep their jobs and hopefully create more. Having a healthy economy makes our community a wonderful place to live and work.
3. It is a safe way to shop
Shops across Broxtowe are Covid-safe, with customer limits, plastic partitioning and lashings of hand sanitiser.
4. You will be doing your bit for the planet
Local shops often use local suppliers – this means that we are all doing our bit to reduce air pollution and traffic and improve the quality of our high streets.
5. You will be buying something unique
You can buy something special that is made with love. Small businesses often stock items which are made locally and are not available anywhere else. With Christmas around the corner - now is a great chance to support our high streets so let us buy local!
