I love the independent shops that we have in Harrogate and I'm a big supporter of shopping locally and supporting these small businesses. I like this article about independent coffee shops gaining ground on the big chains. You definitely get a much more personal service in the independents. We have a wealth of fabulous indie coffee houses here, lets support these places. Why not treat yourself to a coffee in one this weekend?
The beautiful Stray in the heart of Harrogate. It is such a fantastic free resource for us all to enjoy. A great place to sit and chill, meet with friends or just to wander across admiring our lovely town.
