Shop local in Axminster

Find the best places to shop, eat, drink, stay and enjoy yourself

Fiver Fest is back in town

The ‘shop local’ mantra is one that has been widely adopted in Axminster. So our latest Fiver Fest is very much about we traders saying ‘thank you’ to a community that very clearly cares for its independents.

We have all been gratified by the magnificent response as the lockdown restrictions have been gradually eased.

From 12 to 26 June we have great value offers at shops, cafes and restaurants right across town. More than 30 of them at the latest count.

This page is the place where we will keep you in touch with the big picture on where deals are to be had.

Calling all traders. If you don’t yet appear on this site, please go to the foot of the page and find ‘Submit Your Trader Listing’. It’s free, quick and easy. And when it’s place you will have password access to update it at any time. You will also be able to show specific offers and events. We will support you via social media.
