Shop local in Chesterfield

As more shops, market stalls, pubs and restaurants re-open in the town centre, we’ve launched a shop local campaign to encourage residents to support local businesses as we look to re-start our economy following the COVID-19 pandemic.

Throughout the pandemic, Chesterfield residents have continued to visit the town centre in ever greater numbers to buy their essential goods and with the easing of the lockdown we want many more to embrace and support our #ShopLocal campaign.

In Chesterfield, we’re lucky to have so many independent and local retailers on our high street. These independent shops and market stalls help to make our town centre unique and give us something to love that can only be found here in Chesterfield.

Many of you will have spent the last few months shopping online, so now is your chance to come back to the town centre, indulge in some retail therapy and support Chesterfield businesses by shopping local. You’ll be able to find a range of fresh and exciting products on your doorstep and enjoy great customer service from out local retailers.

Below you can view a range of interviews with market traders as well as local independent shop representatives who are all looking forward to welcoming customers back to their businesses.


The safety of those who live, work and shop in Chesterfield town centre is the council’s number one priority and if you visit the town centre, you will notice a number of physical changes that the council has introduced so that everyone feels safe and can enjoy their shopping experience whist following safe social distancing guidelines.

Signage is visible around the town centre advising where to queue outside individual shops, and where restrictions may be enforced. Barriers have also been placed outside shops to make it clear where you should queue and wait to enter.

If you are worried about anything or have any questions, our town centre ambassadors will be on hand to help you.
