The Best of Barnstaple recently launched a 'Buy Local' campaign.  

What is the aim of this campaign?

To highlight to the public the benefits of buying from and supporting the very best local businesses whilst encouraging people to be vocal in their support of these businesses.

We are asking people to think twice before they buy elsewhere as local shops and small businesses are at the very heart of our community and vital to the economy of North Devon.

It can be tough running a business in right now.  Barnstaple businesses need to cope with a lot; recession, the rise in Online competition, rising costs like fuel and the weather!  Whatever has been thrown at them, Barnstaple business owners have been there for their customers and we want to showcase them and ensure that as many people as possible 'Buy Local' and support our fabulous local businesses.

We will be showcasing the best businesses and offering Exclusive Offers and Prizes to everybody who shows their support.

Complete the Buy Local Survey: Upon supporting/signing up you will be invited to complete our optional online survey.  

This is so we can establish what it is in Barnstaple that currently hinders people from buying locally.  Is it the state of the local high street, the variety of shops on offer, the availability of parking, public transport or pedestrian access etc. So why not have your say.
