The second national lockdown has forced non-essential shops to close their doors again, but you can still shop local in Dorchester.

During the spring lockdown Dorchester BID put together a list of all the town’s businesses that were still able to trade. We have compiled a new list as the second lockdown’s restrictions are a little less prohibitive.

Local businesses are offering a whole range of products and services including online orders, click & collect, pay on collection, orders by phone and even in some cases, home delivery. This means the people of Dorchester can still shop safe and shop local.

We’ll do our best to keep it updated during the second lockdown with the latest information regarding businesses in Dorchester. If this includes you, please tell us exactly (we’ve included a contact form below) what you are offering so that we can update this page as well as sharing your news on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter.
