We want to give our vibrant town centres, high streets, retailers, small businesses and markets across the borough the best chance possible of bouncing back.
Shop Local is a Brent Council campaign aimed at encouraging local people to discover the wonderful shops on their doorsteps.
What can you do?
Small independent businesses - the lifeblood of our High Streets have been hit hardest by the lockdown – and they need your support now more than ever.
By shopping local, you are doing your bit to support local businesses, maintain local jobs and preserve the character of your High Street.
Supporting our High Streets creates jobs in the local community, supporting often young and disadvantaged people to find employment. Helping to grow the number of jobs in our local area makes for a better place to live and work, which then creates a healthy economy for the community.
Small and local businesses often stock items which are made locally and aren’t available elsewhere else, providing a great range of choice and unique products that bring much-needed originality and variety into communities – including rare finds and items that aren’t mass produced.
