Love your Camden, shop local

Whilst COVID restrictions remain, there are still ways that you can support local businesses safely through the weeks ahead.

Whether it’s groceries, homeware, gifts or a new record, we have teamed up with MyVirtualNeighbourhood to launch My Virtual Camden, to help you to find the best local shops that Camden has to offer.

Non-essential shops are now closed, but some are still offering online shopping and delivery services. Filter by ‘Show only those who deliver’ to find out more.

These pages will continue to be updated through the weeks and months ahead, so do check back to see what’s available and share with your networks to spread the message.

Many of us have needed a bit of extra help during this difficult year. If you are struggling to feed yourself or your family at the moment, or you know someone who is, please know you are not alone and that there is support available. Find food support at findfood.camden.gov.uk.

If you have a favourite local business that’s not on the list already, why not add it and help them to get the word out using the link below:

Your high street shops and town centres are all working hard to keep you safe when you visit by making their premises COVID-secure. You can play your part by following measures in-store to keep yourself and everyone else safe.  With the rapidly changing nature of the COVID-19 response, information and advice from Government can change quickly. So before you visit, make sure you check our guidance for shopping safely, and don’t forget your face covering.

Other ways you can support local businesses on our high streets:

  • Black Pound Day: Every first Saturday of the month is also Black Pound Day, which encourages everyone to spend money with local and online UK Black-owned businesses. Find out more on the Black Pound Day website.
  • Raise awareness: Show your support for local businesses by sharing or putting a Love Your Camden poster in your window.
  • Spread the message: Share your favourite high streets and local businesses on Twitter using the hashtag #LoveyourCamden
