Shop Dorking Support Local
Whether you are planning a bit of retail therapy to lift your mood, getting to grips with your Christmas shopping or you just need some essentials, don’t forget the most important item to put on your list…“SHOP LOCAL”.
Never has it been more vital to pull together as a community and show our loyalty to Dorking’s retailers and businesses. There are many benefits to be enjoyed – emotionally as well as economically.
– Supporting individual Dorking businesses boosts our local economy as a whole
– You’ll get exceptional, often personalised, customer service
– Local businesses tend to know more about what they are selling
– Shopping locally reduces environmental impact so it’s better for the planet too
– It feels good, as well as doing good!
Our fabulous eclectic range of shops, businesses and stall holders means there is so much to discover in Dorking. Browse shop windows, websites or our markets for inspiration and you’ll find truly unique gifts and treats as well as those all important everyday essentials.
What’s more, Dorking’s LoyalFree app features tours and trails to make your shopping even easier – including listings of businesses who deliver to your door or provide click and collect services, as well as special deals, discounts and offers for you to take advantage of.
Dorking’s weekly Friday market continues to trade as usual (with social distancing measures in place) in the upper area of St Martin’s Walk car park. Just a short distance from the Friday market, you will also find Dorking’s FoodFloat in its temporary new location of the main square in St Martin’s Walk. The FoodFloat is open Fridays only for the time-being from 8.30am – mid afternoon, but customers can also book local deliveries online which will be carried out on Thursdays and Saturdays. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details or click here.
If shopping improves your mood (and who doesn’t need a bit of that right now?), when you “Shop Dorking, Support Local” you’ll be lifting the spirits of our wonderful retailers too.
Make it your business to support local businesses and let’s give Dorking a boost!
