Our high streets have long been a source of unique, specialist and independent traders

Even in tough times such as this, there are a number of traders across the region who are providing their customers with the best possible service.

We hope to shine a light on an exceptional trader each week who goes the extra mile for their customers.

Perhaps it is your local butcher or baker who prides itself on its service? Perhaps it is a retailer who goes above and beyond for its customers? Maybe it is an independent market trader who brings bargains to your town every week?

If you like in more rural areas it could be the village shop or post master who ensures customers have all the essentials they need.

If you know of a business or have a business that deserves a moment in the spotlight, use the form below to nominate yourself to appear – for free – in the County Times.
