Welcome to Shop Chester-le-Street

Project supporting and championing Chester-le-Street’s shops and other businesses

Shop Chester-le-Street is a campaign to support the town’s shops and other businesses, and spread positive messages about what Chester-le-Street offers.

Using the tagline “Shop Local – Shop Chester-le-Street”, we want more people to discover and enjoy what’s right here on their doorstep.

And as all of us navigate our way through the aftermath of Covid, our message is that #CLSIsOpen: Chester-le-Street is open, safe, and welcoming.

How it works

Launched in April 2017, the project to date has been funded by a combination of contributions from local retail landlords, as well as Chester-le-Street & District Area Action Partnership (AAP) via Chester-le-Street Business Association.

The project is managed on behalf of these partners by Gateshead-based retail consultants CannyInsights.com.

Marketing and mentoring support from retail expert Graham Soult is available free of charge to any local business that has paid its £10 annual fee to be a member of the Business Association.

We are also helping businesses to use the Roam app, for free, as part of our “Roam Local in Chester-le-Street” campaign.
