Christmas Day is drawing nearer and that means that it’s time for Everton Park residents to start thinking about where they are going to do their Christmas shopping this year.
While online shopping is becoming increasingly popular amongst shoppers, it’s important that we don’t forget about our local businesses.
A lot of local shoppers may wonder why they should look to local businesses when shopping online can offer competitive prices and can be at our doorstep at the click of a button. But even if you don’t want to visit a physical shop, a lot of local businesses have online shops too, and it is worth hunting them out to avoid buying products that have to travel from overseas. By buying a product from somewhere local you are likely to have cheaper and quicker deliveries and it will be much easier to return products, not to mention you will be helping to support the local economy.
There are some great shops in the local area and they deserve our business otherwise they simply won’t be able to continue to operate.
By supporting local businesses we are helping to support the community that we live in and keeping our dollars in the local community.
So when you’re planning your Christmas shopping list this year, think about supporting the local businesses that help support you.
