There’s no doubt about it Christmas is well and truly upon upon us, but many still haven’t finished their Christmas shopping.

Why not support local businesses this year, it can be too easy to shop online or pop to larger chains, when Crewe has a number of local businesses that could help you out with those last minute gifts.

We have local producers that could help you put a food hamper together, Minshall’s Nursery have a wide selection of locally produced food and drinks, the indoor market has some great products to choose from, and of course Offbeat Brewery and The Beer Dock can offer some festive cheer.

We’d love to hear your ideas on shopping local in the comments section.
