How To Support Local & Small Businesses This Christmas

Christmas shopping will certainly be different this year, but it's also an opportunity to change your retail habits. Instead of having a mad dash around the shopping centre, why not learn how to shop local and small this Christmas?

Since the beginning of the pandemic, independent businesses and the hospitality sector have seen a major reduction in sales — with many facing an uncertain future. But as the festive period is the peak selling season, choosing local and independent services over the big names can make a huge difference.

Throughout the pandemic, communities across the country have banded together to provide help and supplies for neighbors through the likes of WhatsApp and Facebook. With that many locals, there's bound to be dozens of unique recommendations in your area that you haven't discovered yet.

You could even kickstart a group specifically on local Christmas shopping if there isn't one already, where you can share local recommendations, present ideas, and vouchers.

And if your family, friends, or colleagues live locally, see what independent shops they frequent on the daily.
