Shop Hungerford! - here's why

on 08 August 2013.

When you spend £10 at an independent Hungerford shop – nearly £7 stays in the local economy

You are supporting the town and its jobs – independent businesses are better at creating more higher paid jobs in the local community.

Think of the money you save on fuel or fares by shopping right here – on our High Street.

Less travel equals less wear, tear on your car and less pollution too.

Independent businesses support the local community by as much as ten times more than huge chains.

You keep the luxury of choice – independent shops give us choice, variety and often the benefit of expertise and advice.

Hungerford High Street attracts visitors from around the world – your support of your local shops keeps the High Street exciting and attractive.

You’ve heard so many times about a favourite pub that has closed or a favourite shop that went out of business: Use it or lose it!

Did you know?

According to ‘This is Money’ website, one family is saving 20% by buying British from local independent shops. The family of three, by using smaller shops, has bought food produced in its local area and over six months recorded its impressive money saving whilst also, they say, buying much better quality from the independent specialist shops.
