SUDBURY'S VIRTUAL HIGH STREET

Supporting Sudbury's community and businesses through collaboration during the Coronavirus outbreak 

The COVID-19 crisis, and the measures implemented to protect us all, have had an unprecedented impact on our communities and businesses. We are calling on Sudbury to shop small and support our local independent businesses - which has never been more important. From high teas in a box, 'isolation packs' delivered to your door, to live online sale rails, our independent shops are offering some brilliantly inventive ways to bring the high street to you. Take a look below for some of the services on offer:

ways to support local from home during the COVID-19 crisis

  • Order takeaway from a Sudbury restaurant (perhaps instead of your usual 'going out / date' night).

  • Use your essentials shop to buy fresh produce at Sudbury Market and local essential retailers (see below).

  • Follow, like and share your favourite Sudbury cafes, shops, restaurants and pubs on social media.

  • Leave a review of your favourite Sudbury businesses on platforms like Google, Trip Advisor and Facebook.

  • Join mailing lists to receive news, offers and promotions from your favourite Sudbury businesses.

  • Shop / order online or over the phone  - our guide below outlines local delivery services.

  • Buy experience / gift vouchers to be redeemed at a later date, something to look forward to and a great way to support your favourite independents.

  • Please get in touch via the Sudbury Community Network if you or someone you know is in need of help and unable to leave their home for essentials, we're here to help. 

Why shop locally?  

Locally owned independent retailers are the backbone of our community; they provide a friendly, tailored service, local jobs, they often support community and charity initiatives and support other local producers, makers and retailers. This all boosts our local economy, community cohesion and reduces your carbon footprint. Recent research has also found that as a result of the COVID-19 crisis 41% of UK consumers are now doing the majority of their shopping with local independent retailers and discovering the many benefits of doing so! Lets hope you stick with them in the long run...
