Support your Independent Stores this Christmas

2020 has been one hell of a year – We’ve had two lockdowns, and living within the four walls of our homes has become the norm. Some restrictions have been lifted this week, with retail stores up and down the country being allowed to reopen. We, as The Basement Community, are fortunate to have seen many stores and brands grow – some of which have grown directly within The Basement. They are all part of our culture, and are at the forefront of helping it grow and evolve. We have rounded up a small list of independent stores local to us and will be updating this article as you suggest more on our instagram stories.

Show support over this tough festive period. If you can’t get to the stores themselves, be sure to shop online to help the people that really need it.
