Here’s a photo gallery showing some of the picturesque local shops in contrast with the superstores in Bournemouth.
These proud small businesses are in a permanent fight for survival with giant stores, though they are still up and thriving on the High Street, helping Bournemouth’s economy grow.
Bournemouth’s local shops not affected by superstores’ competition
In an era in which big chain stores keep spreading at a very fast pace, some believe that small businesses are doomed to disappear, however Bournemouth’s local shops claim not to be really affected by this trend.
Small businesses are supported by local authorities and loyal customers as shown by the success of the Small Business Saturday.
