Local businesses are a crucial part of the Stone community and bring variation and vitality to our town and High Street. Being local these businesses are keeping money circulating within the local economy and help to maintain a sense of community.
In order to survive local businesses are increasingly finding they need to work together, putting aside the natural urge to compete. When businesses work together everyone benefits, the businesses themselves as well as the communities they serve.
A lot of local retailers are running independent shopping events, discounts, late nights and Stone Town Council is behind a late night shopping event and market on the 6th December. Follow the various Facebook pages to keep up to date with what’s going on in YOUR town!
