Christmas Shopping in Chester

Enjoy the festive and late night shopping in Chester this Christmas

Immerse yourself in a spot of retail therapy for Christmas 2020

Things are not quite how we’d like this Christmas and we’ll miss the Christmas markets but with so many great local businesses pulling out all of the stops we can still enjoy our Christmas shopping to the fullest in Chester!

We heartily encourage you to ditch the mainstream online shopping channels in favour of maximising on all the delights of the cities local shopping and the opportunity to #shoplocal both online and in the shops once they open up again for your Christmas gifts, Christmas drinks and Christmas gift vouchers with the added bonus of knowing you’re also supporting Chester’s local businesses through this difficult time in the true spirit of Christmas.
