INDEPENDENTS’ Week is up and running in Salisbury as the city’s local retailers offer shoppers discounts and special offers along with their traditional warm welcome and personalized service.

Across the city 36 independently owned businesses have teamed up to offer promotions and prizes while they show shoppers what they can do.

The businesses taking part in Independents’ Week include shops, cafes, hairdressing salons and hotels.

There is also a busking competition to help create a buzz as shoppers peruse the gifts and goods on offer in some of Salisbury’s finest shops.

Shoppers can enter a competition to win a hot air balloon flight and daily deals and discounts can be seen at or by searching for salisburyindependentsweek on Facebook.

Salisbury Independents’ Week was launched this morning at Casa Fina on Salisbury High Street.
