I can't quite believe our 'Buy Local' campaign was set up all of 10 years ago! There is no better time to celebrate as buying local is so important to the Guernsey economy at this time.
What is the aim of the Buy Local 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 the island.
The reality is that big national chains 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. Guernsey businesses need to cope with a lot; the rise in Online competition and indeed COVID - 19! Whatever has been thrown at them, Guernsey 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.
