Recent studies have shown that local businesses are especially important for the elderly and vulnerable, due to ease of access by public transport and in most cases, cheaper pricing.
Local businesses such as shops, stores and tradespeople provide essential services and products to the local community, in particular those who may be unable to travel further afield due to illness or lack of access to transport.
Keeping costs down and at times specifically tailoring their services to suit individual requirements, local businesses often go above and beyond the call of duty to support their community and customers.
As such, The Best Of is launching its Buy Local campaign this month, aiming to promote the most beloved Macclesfield businesses that deserve attention and praise.
