The best stores to buy from are the shops in the heart of your local town.
Whether it’s a boutique or a fast-food outlet, you’re bound to find a good selection of food, clothes, accessories and home goods at every corner.
You might also be able to find deals and freebies at local stores such as Marks and Spencer, Asda, Argos, Tesco and Lidl.
You can also shop online at select major retailers, such as Asda and Amazon, and use your favourite app or web browser to shop.
