Plymouth Retailers: 

Open for business

The past year has seen many of our beloved Independent retailers having to close their doors and find new ways to attract buyers to their wares. The City's retail credentials are enhanced by the rich and varied products created and promoted by our 'Indies', and for many, April 12th can't come soon enough. 


To remind you of the fantastically bespoke items that will be waiting for you on your return, we've asked some of our local retailers to pick a couple of items to tempt you in.
