Open Letter to Exeter

This year has been one of the most challenging for businesses across the city.  We have navigated the increases in the cost of raw materials we need to trade. New challenges of trading with our European neighbours shrinking our markets. And faced the cost of the living crisis affecting so many in our community. This combination of external hurdles has created the perfect storm. 

Many of the small and independent businesses in the city are facing  uniquely challenging times. 

The best case scenario for many small businesses in the city is a good Christmas trading period.
