We’re all going through a tough time at the moment, and as social distancing and self- isolation continues to restrict what we can and can’t do, it’s important that we reach out and support each other.
The way we live and shop has, at least for the meantime, changed drastically – there are restrictions and limits on certain products and some are increasingly hard to get hold of. And if you’ve ever tried to get a supermarket to deliver your shopping, you’ll know that you're in for a long wait.
But it’s not all doom and gloom – many small local businesses are stepping up to the plate, providing delivery services to support the communities that have supported them for many years.
From fresh fruit, meat and vegetables to wool and dress fabrics, fresh fish to craft materials, you’ll find a huge array of fantastic businesses, right here on your door step, more than happy to deliver your shopping straight to your door.
In many cases payment can be contactless, made over the phone or via Paypal rather than handling cash.
Here at thebestof we want to champion those brilliant local businesses who are keeping their communities going through these testing times
