With it being payday for a number of people we thought we’d recommend some independent stores you can help out during this pandemic.

Supporting independent business is more important than ever given the current circumstances. Covid-19 is ravaging people’s livelihoods, with stores closing and consumers locked down indoors.

It’s a time where business owners, no matter how careful they’ve been are at the mercy of the virus.

However, there are some things in our control we can do to help. We’ve lined up some independent web stores from a range of industries, from books stores to record labels. If you are in a position to spare money we’d recommend you purchase that t-shirt you’ve had your eyes on or the vinyl that’d fit perfectly in your collection.
