We're keeping business and jobs in Cornwall


The benefit of being a local business without a national head office is that we are…...flexible!

Our prices, products and business terms are not set in stone, talk to us and tell us what your business needs are. We are competitive on price and on service we won’t be beaten!

Why should we all support local businesses?

Several studies have shown that when you buy from an independent, locally owned business, rather than a nationally owned businesses, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses and service providers and therefore, continuing to strengthen the economic base of the community.

Support community groups:  

Non-profit organisations receive an average 250% more support from smaller business owners than they do from large businesses. We support a range of local groups and charities, view them here

Keep our community unique:  

Where we shop, where we eat and have fun, all of it makes our community home. Our one-of-a-kind businesses are an integral part of the distinctive character of our county.

Reduce environmental impact:

Locally owned businesses can make more local purchases requiring less transportation and generally set up shop in town or city centres as opposed to developing on the fringe. This generally means contributing less to sprawl, congestion, habitat loss and pollution.

Create more good jobs:

Small local businesses are the largest employer nationally, and in our community provide the most jobs to residents.

Get better service:

Local businesses often hire people with a better understanding of the products they are selling and take more time to get to know customers.

Invest in community:

Local businesses are owned by people who live in this community, are less likely to leave.

Put your taxes to good use:  

Local businesses in town centres require comparatively little infrastructure investment and make more efficient use of public services as compared to nationally owned businesses entering the community.

Buy what you want, not what someone wants you to buy:

A marketplace of tens of thousands of small businesses is the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long-term.  A multitude of small businesses, each selecting products based not on a national sales plan but on their own interests and the needs of their local customers, guarantees a much broader range of product choices.

Encourage local prosperity:

A growing body of economic research shows that in an increasingly homogenised world, entrepreneurs and skilled workers are more likely to invest and settle in communities that preserve their one-of-a-kind businesses and distinctive character.
