At this time of year why on earth would anyone want to sit in traffic and waste time queuing to go and by Christmas presents? You could shop online, but where is the fun in that? Being festive and making the most of what is on your door step is the best way to support your community and keep it thriving.
You’d be surprised what you can pick up on the High Street, Belmont Parade, Royal Parade and also from our other great businesses (who you can find on our website). Many of them are also members of the Chislehurst Reward Scheme so you could find yourself getting discounts on items as you shop.
Ada and Albert have some great fashion items, Annabel’s have beautiful gifts, as do Wrattens – and if you are stuck for ideas the friendly staff will always help out. You could stop off for a coffee at Bank House (or a sneaky glass of Prosecco), or pop into The Thyme for lunch. Have you considered buying Theatre or Concert tickets as a gift? If so, Go Travel can help. Get your nails done in Shape and Polish and your hair done in Tribe or V-Hair Design for that special night out. Don’t forget your feet – all dancing feet need care and attention and the Chislehurst Clinic can help! We could mention everyone, as our town is full of fantastic local businesses.
Embrace what is on your doorstep and shop local.
