Have you ever wanted to shout about your favourite shop/business in town?

The Dorchester BID is running a competition to help give recognition to the businesses that you most enjoy visiting in Dorchester. Most people recognise the importance of having a healthy high street on their doorstep and in a world of on-line purchasing, what still draws people to visit a town centre?

One of the obvious things is the whole ‘shopping experience’ another is the invaluable experience and insight that some businesses can offer a customer perhaps helping to avoid making a bad purchase or discovering a totally different solution which works better for them. One of the other key factors often mentioned in surveys about the on-line vs. High street shopping is the importance of ‘what happens next?’ or after sales service and support.

Whatever the factors are for you when shopping, Dorchester has a proliferation of specialist, independent businesses mixed with both traditional and new high street brands – Perhaps it’s time to celebrate the outstanding examples, raise the bar a little and even help some who might need to improve their customer experience?

This might be where you had the best shopping/service experience or perhaps they went above and beyond the call of duty!”
