About TheBestOf Shrewsbury

about thebestof Shrewsbury

Our mission

thebestof Shrewsbury is the ultimate guide for information on recommended local businesses. Our mission is to help people find reputable independent shops and services, through our super-high traffic website of course, but we also shout about businesses via regular e-newsletters, our blog and social media channels. We're a lot different to traditional 'name and number' directories, which are often just used by people looking for three quotes and the cheapest price! thebestof Shrewsbury is all about quality, and for that - we charge the businesses we promote. Our 40+ years of media experience, wide range of marketing tools, ongoing support, large consumer database... all mean that thebestof is not a free service.

Our vision

thebestof Shrewsbury is a gathering point for the community as well as great businesses. We are a hub for thebestof everything local, where you can find amazing shops and services as recommended by real people, access sizzling special offers, keep up to date with what's happening in Shrewsbury and promote your (non commercial) events free of charge.

Ultimately, our shared passion for Shrewsbury is to see it grow and prosper for the businesses and people within it.


thebestof started life in 2005 and over that time has grown into a household name. We have coverage in over 200 areas across the UK, showcasing and supporting more than 30,000 businesses and we are proud to be 'local' as every area is run and owned independently by a local person. In Shrewsbury, that's us - Emma and Andy, as well as our small but perfectly formed band of trusted associates. We are not simply people who have bought a marketing franchise; we have over 40 years' marketing experience behind us.

Each local 'franchisee' has been selected to work with the best businesses and support their community in a variety of ways .

We are dedicated to supporting independent businesses in the UK and helping them prosper.

thebestof has received an unprecedented amount of recognition over the last few years with too many awards to mention.
