SHOP LOCAL: LymeOnline launches campaign to support local traders

LymeOnline is launching a campaign to help local traders get back on their feet as the lockdown restrictions are lifted. 

As shops across the country open their doors for the first time in months, residents are being encouraged to support their local high streets.

Dorset Council members and West Dorset MP Chris Loder are among those who have been spreading the ‘shop local’ message, as well as the Federation of Small Businesses.

LymeOnline is also backing the ‘shop local’ message and is offering free promotion to local businesses as they reopen.

We have compiled a list of businesses which are currently open or will be opening shortly, which will be regularly updated and posted on our social media channels over the coming weeks. The list will also be published in the fortnightly digital edition of the LymeOnline newspaper.

We are also offering local businesses currently trading a free listing in the LymeOnline Local Business Directory up until the end of September.

These listings usually cost £10 for a year and include your business name, photo/logo, a short description of what you do and full contact details, i.e. phone number, postal address, email and links to your own website or social media.
