Buy Local - Support Guernsey Businesses
20th June 2012
... Comments

The Best of Guernsey run an ongoing 'BUY LOCAL' campaign encouraging islanders to support local business where they can.  We are asking islanders to support the campaign and use local shops and small businesses which are so vital to the economy of our island.   

 


 

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 play an extremely important part in the health of our economy.

The reality is that big national chains and online shopping often don't match the local businesses customer service, product knowledge or hands on experience.

It can be tough running a business in Guernsey right now.  They need to cope with a lot; recession, the rise in online competition, high rents, and the weather!  Whatever has been thrown at them, so many local business owners work hard to provide a service to their customers. We applaud them and would like to encourage others to 'Buy Local' and support our fabulous local businesses.
