Buy Local

Now more than ever, it's important that we stay safe, stay local and stay connected while buying local. That's the vision of Buy Local, a website created by the three local business chambers in North Tyneside; Whitley Bay, North Shields and Wallsend, with the help of Newcastle Building Society.

Buy Local provides a directory of businesses operating in North Tyneside. This lets residents, business owners, and visitors have a simple method of knowing what services are available to them.

Buy Local is not just a facility for businesses to raise their profile and for others to find them. It also provides information dedicated to the broader aspects and attractions of town centres and high streets. This includes details of events, heritage sites, parks, walks and other items of interest to the community.
