We're getting behind Uttoxeter and we want you to do the same by using your town centre and supporting your local traders.
Butchers, bakers, haberdashers, gift shops and more, there's a huge amount of variety in Uttoxeter, and your local traders are there to give you a unique, personal, service.
Supporting your local traders is great for you and great for your community.
Here are some of the reasons why:
Jobs: In the current climate, it's increasingly hard for shop owners. Using and enjoying your local shops helps to preserve jobs in the local area
History: Uttoxeter has been around since Saxon times and its history is easy to see, even on a quick trip around the town. You can get everything you need in a place with a real sense of history - much
better than the local supermarket!
Variety & independence: There are lots of independent shops in Uttoxeter. That means you're getting a personal service every time you shop.
Customer service: Uttoxeter traders really care about their customers and a recent survey rated the town 100% for customer experience. Traders will go out of their way to get you exactly what
Safety: In that same survey, 96% of people said they felt very comfortable and safe shopping in Uttoxeter. It's a friendly place to be.
Environment: Buying locally produced food is better for the environment. It chalks up far fewer food miles and causes less pollution.
There will be lots going on in Uttoxeter over the next few months as part of our Shop Uttoxeter campaign.
We hope you'll come along and get involved, but if what you've seen so far hasn't convinced you, take a look at the latest news and find out about your local traders and their shops.
We'll see you in town!
