THINK WHERE YOU SHOP

The #THINKWHEREYOUSHOP campaign encourages the nation to shop locally online. 

This is not asking you to change everything about your online shopping habits, but on the odd occasion, use an alternative to the online giants such as Amazon by looking for websites that are run by local or independent shops. 

Bricks and mortar independent shops on our high street now depend on their online sales as much as their traditional in-store customers since the Coronavirus pandemic shifted the way people shop. Without these stores, we risk losing the heart of our communities.
