2020 has been a crazy year for everyone and Christmas is the perfect time to share some festive joy with your loved ones and your local community.

Here are four ways you can support local businesses in Ipswich this Christmas:

  1. Buy from small businesses. By supporting small businesses, you're helping to keep the spirit of independents alive in Ipswich, even if you just buy a card or gift voucher!
  2. Shop on the high street. No waiting around for packages and no trying to catch the postman; make a list and get all your Christmas shopping done on the high street.
  3. Choose click & collect. If you do buy online, click & collect is a simple way to support the local high street. It shows the national brands that you want their store to stay open in Ipswich.
  4. Choose local restaurants. When you're picking your next spot for dinner or your next takeaway order; choose independent restaurants or pubs.
