Celebrate Exeter and go local!

This Saturday (3rd December) marks Small Business Saturday in the UK and to celebrate we’ve picked a selection of fab finds from independent stores in the Exeter Business Improvement District.

The Small Business Saturday campaign was created in 2013 to highlight small business success and encourage consumers to shop locally and support small businesses in their community. With over 300 independents in the city centre, small business Saturday is a great opportunity to step away from the main streets and find a wonderful choice of shops and boutiques including:
