Buy Local week finished last week across the UK, but David Ruddle owner of The Best Of Eastbourne hopes that the success from last week will continue.
Buy Local puts emphasis on local business buying from local suppliers.
It is thought that from every pound spent in local business 50-70p is put back into the local community.
“It is thought that every pound spent in a local business is valued ten times more than that spent in a national one” said David.
Buy Local is a free service that encourages people to spend their money locally.
