Diversity draws tourism
And if saving the character of your local area wasn’t enough, then guess what that very character brings? Tourism! If each area had the same shops, then there would never be any need to explore another area. Plus, tourism drives spending, and that spending will bump up your local economy, promote more opportunity for local entrepreneurs and the cycle starts again!
Here at Exmoor Distillery, we believe in the power of independent businesses and local shopping to transform our way of life. They’re the cornerstone of creating a balanced, healthy economy while providing local entrepreneurs with the opportunity to contribute to their local communities.
With a tough start to the year for many small and independent businesses across the south-west and, indeed, the country, we hope that these reasons will encourage people to show their support and shop local.
They need it now more than ever, and their success equals your success. So, why not?
