"I encourage all our customers to do as much of their shopping as possible with excellent independent retailers throughout our towns. I want to urge people across the whole country of the importance of keeping local shops and business’s thriving because, without their help, many will not survive these difficult times. A directory like this helps make that a reality by being found by their handy postcode search."

"We have been selling quality fruit and veg here in Plymouth city market for over 44yrs. A lot of the money we receive goes right back into our community which helps support people here in so many ways, a lot of people don’t realise this. A lot of our customers dependent on local stores like ours to survive during these difficult times; now is the time to use us or lose us."

"We are professional Cornish butchers who farm and work closely with other local farmers to deliver great meats to you. We are living proof that a family-run butcher’s in a rural town can survive in today’s multinational supermarket environment; we have done so purely by the support of our local and outlying community that have chosen to shop locally for quality and trust in our products and the service we provide.”

“I’ve run my seafood stall selling Peter’s fish and local crab for thirteen years, and he has been fishing these local waters for over 35 yrs. Our daughter helps during college holidays, so it is a family enterprise. We feel it so important to provide a local service for many reasons. We are indebted to all of our customers for their continued support, and we hope to offer our services for a long time to come."
