The battle for survival


The need to support Axminster’s small independent traders has never been more urgent. The coronavirus pandemic has carved deep into the resilience of traders who were already struggling to cope with the challenges of recent years.

This website has been created by Totally Locally Axminster to drive the cause – and to raise awareness of just how much you can buy in this great little town of ours.

Please get behind your local businesses in what for some is a battle for survival.

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.
