Support Local

'Buy local' and support borough businesses


People are being encouraged to spend local when shopping for essentials while ensuring they adhere to government guidelines, to support borough businesses and stay safe as the coronavirus crisis continues.

However, when shopping in Dudley, people are reminded to play their part to help prevent the spread of the virus and follow government guidelines.

- Regular hand washing is still vital
- Keep a safe distance from others (two metres where possible)
- Continue to limit your contact with other people
- Wear face coverings to protect yourself and others

Virtual Christmas Market

Many of our small businesses have had to close their doors again to prevent the spread of coronavirus, at one of the busiest times of the year.

That’s why, the council is launching Dudley’s first virtual Christmas market!

It will allow a selection of local retailers and businesses to sell their products and services online, as well as offer discounts and special offers.

So even from the comfort of their own home, residents choosing to shop online can still shop local and support their high street.
