As an independent business in Chichester we know the importance of supporting local and being part of the wonderful indie community we are so lucky to have in our city.
This year has been tough on small businesses and we know many that have been working hard to keep offering their services throughout the restrictions the pandemic has posed. So, we thought we’d share the love and shine a light on some of the local businesses the team here at Rosie Rose just couldn’t be without….
First up is Rosie Rose owner Danny. A self-confessed foodie, Danny loves a double espresso from The Barn in Little London, which is currently still running a takeaway and delivery service. He is also a big fan of the delicious selection of fresh bread available at The Barn’s food hall, The Larder.
Keeping up the foodie theme, Danny also enjoys his weekly fruit and vegetable delivery from Tuppenny Barn, which is located just outside of Chichester.
Our Shop Manager Jane loves her coffee fix and one of her favourite local spots is Wagtail Coffee & Yoga in Eastgate. Although many of their services have been put on hold recently, Wagtail is typically a wonderful community hub with delicious coffee and cake, a range of yoga classes and even a display of work from local artist’s for sale.
Another friendly face on our shop floor, Jess is quite partial to picking up a freshly made sandwich from The Lunch Box in Cooper Street. From scrumptious sandwiches to salads, cakes and coffee, this Chichester favourite is a popular go-to for city workers and is currently still offering deliveries and takeaways.
When restrictions allow Jess also enjoys discovering the stalls at the weekly Farmer’s Market in Chichester to pick up fresh and local produce.
This is just a small selection of the inspiring independent shops and eateries we are lucky to have on our doorstep in Chichester. Let’s keep our beautiful high street alive and #shoplocal as much as we can during the next few months!
