The Scarborough News - - WELCOME TO YOUR NEWS -

Dear Reader Shops and shop­ping are very much in the news; not least in our pages!

Our Love Your High Street cam­paign is gather­ing mo­men­tum as Christ­mas ap­proaches, with, this week, traders in Bar Street out­lin­ing why you shouldn’t just go on­line, but think about spend­ing lo­cally, in the ar­ray of shops in Scar­bor­ough and this area. Their ef­forts are in­valu­able for the fu­ture of the town cen­tre. Our town has some great shops, big and small, and some great peo­ple work­ing hard in them – not least Trevor Whar­ton, who is clos­ing his Ramshill Road shop af­ter an amaz­ing 40 years. Trevor has matched and beaten some of the big­ger na­tional car­pet stores, and is a per­fect ex­am­ple of a lo­cal trader whose ex­pe­ri­ence, cus­tomer ser­vice and friendly wel­come are worth the trip out of your front door. Talk­ing of busi­nesses, it’s nearly time to cel­e­brate the va­ri­ety we have at the coast’s top busi­ness awards – the short­list and ticket de­tails are on page 15.
