Hope to the High Street

Amid increasing concerns about the prosperity of Dumfries and calls for urgent action to safeguard the future of the High Street, we are asking you to support our new campaign, to bring some much-needed TLC to the town centre and help revitalise our capital town

How to get involved…


Support local businesses and the town by shopping local and buying local
whenever you can. See the Dumfries Retailers Association’s ‘Shop Local’ campaign

It’s not just independents – national chains need your support too, so Dumfries
branches don’t close.

Spread the Love Dumfries message to friends and family. Share our Love Dumfries posts
on social media. Display our stickers (coming soon) in shop windows and car windows.

Find out about and support local initiatives such as plans to improve the
Midsteeple Quarter (see page 31, May issue)
