Over recent decades it has become increasingly difficult for locally owned businesses to operate successfully in what is a rapidly changing marketplace.
Out-of-town shopping centres, excessive business rates, town centre parking difficulties and the domination of the internet by national chains and world corporations with huge advertising budgets have all contributed to the issues having a negative effect on local businesses, with many having to close down meaning a loss of that particular service on the high street.
The purpose of INfurness Local is to make it easier for local residents, and area visitors, to choose locally owned businesses when searching for the products and services they need. That also means that the local economy in the Furness area gets stronger.
We encourage everybody to support local and INfurness Local makes it so much easier by sharing over 1800 locally owned businesses in more than 500 different categories meaning whatever you’re looking for, you can find it, INfurness Local
