The Northern Echo

The campaign to Buy Local is gathering momentum. In these difficult times, supporting local business is something more and more people are starting to feel strongly about.

The Northern Echo is happy to do its bit to promote the need to buy local.

Although buying online sometimes seems attractive there's nothing to beat dealing with a supplier face-to-face. Often there's hardly any difference in price, too. Local companies have responded to the challenge of the internet. Prices are more competitive than you may think.

On top of that there is less pollution buying locally and usually no need to wait for your goods to be delivered.
Shopping local also promotes individuality and encourages small businesses to grow.

We are happy to support the Buy Local campaign and hope that our readers will support it too, but using the local businesses and services advertised in The Northern Echo.
