Think Local First This Christmas

COVID-19 has caused huge challenges for so many local independent businesses. During the 1st lockdown many had to literally adapt overnight and create new ways of providing goods and services for us all whilst adhering to Government Guidelines. Many saw a huge surge in demand and worked tirelessly to keep up with unprecedented demand. As a result, local businesses began to provide home delivery, click and collect, takeaway options and online services (all of which you'll find details of in our Shop OX9 Directory). Our Directory now features a fantastic collection of high quality local independent businesses. For those that have been closed, these businesses need us more than ever. and will only continue to operate locally if we support them to help them bounce back and recover.

This year we decided to create our very first Shop OX9 Christmas Gift Gift to spark some festive inspiration to make it easier to think local first and support our local businesses that really need us! We have delivered our Guide to over 5000 homes in Thame and hope that this will have helped everyone support local this Christmas. We've also made it available online so we can reach as many people as possible. We hope you like it!
