Holly’s Independent Guide to the UK

This year I’ve been travelling up and down the country in search of vibrant independent shopping scenes, and was so thrilled by what I found! But so many of the brilliant businesses I found, I came across by luck, and I realised there was nowhere to go and find them, all in one place.

Holly & Co champions the independents and we are campaigning to encourage the nation to shop from small businesses this Christmas. We hope that our annual campaign will raise the profile of small businesses, and how truly brilliant they are. And, whilst I will be championing these shops 365 days a year, the message is especially pertinent at Christmas.

Know that behind each shop window is a small business owner bringing their pride and joy to life, creating a truly unique experience for their customers, to make a living doing what they love. It is these heroes that are responsible for bringing our communities together. They’re the reasons our towns are hometowns, not clone towns.
