Geddon and pledge to shop local!
This year has been incredibly hard for local retail and hospitality businesses. We’re asking you to join our amazing cast of characters and make a pledge to shop locally for your Christmas gifts this year. With so many businesses offering local deliveries, click and collect and alternative ways to shop it’s easy to shop local and means you’re helping to make a positive difference to Plymouth.
In need of inspiration?
Don’t worry, you’re in luck! The Shop 4 Plymouth website (shop4plymouth.co.uk) has been created to help you discover the incredible array of shops on offer in our city and showcases lots of brilliant traders. It’s easy to find what you’re looking for with filtered options and you can check out the blogs for plenty of extra inspiration for Christmas gifts and more.
Plus, search @Shop4Plymouth on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and follow to brighten up your newsfeed with regular bursts of inspiration and the latest news from retailers in Plymouth.
Keep an eye out for our gift idea blogs and suggestions coming up over the next few weeks.
Whether it’s continuing to buy your fresh produce from local butchers, green grocers and fruit and veg shops or committing to buying gifts for friends and family from Plymouth businesses, we’re asking you to make a pledge and to share with us on social media how you’re supporting local this Christmas. Many, small, independent businesses depend on the Christmas shopping season so please support them where you can to save businesses and protect jobs.
But remember the big chains and leisure businesses employ thousands of local people too, so any money spent in Plymouth still helps the local economy.
Cut out and take a photo or video with our ‘I Shop 4 Plymouth’ pledge and join our virtual high street of shoppers. Simply post your pledge, tell us how you’re planning to buy locally and share it with us on social media, tagging @Shop4Plymouth on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and using #GeddonPlymouth.
