Follow the links below for information on Cheddar-based businesses. This section has been split up into ‘themed’ pages, to enable users to more quickly find the information they need (rather than scrolling through a long list), and for those advertisers using the Adwords system to more closely target particular pages. There are a lot more businesses in Cheddar than are listed here – not everyone has sent their details over yet – so if you run a BS27-based* business see below for instructions on how to get listed on these pages.
Map areas mentioned for central shops in business listings refer to the map below.
VISITORS TO CHEDDAR – DISCOUNT PARKING SCHEME
If you are parking in the Church Street Car Park near the Market Cross in the centre of the village (Map Area 3), you can reclaim 50p of your parking charges for a £5 spend in any of the shops participating in this scheme run by Cheddar Traders’ Association – look for the sign in the window.
This web site strongly supports local shopping, and trade between local businesses. We are fortunate to have some good shops in Cheddar that offer a distinct character and something different from national chain stores. By shopping locally it makes the village sustainable, supports local family businesses, and you are also assured of a local retail contact point for additional purchases or troubleshooting. It also keeps money circulating within the village rather than draining away to shops in Weston, Bristol or Wells, and enables Cheddar businesses to employ more staff. So if you can find what you need in a local shop or a locally-owned internet store, save yourself some travel time, bus fares or petrol, and shop in Cheddar.
HOW TO GET LISTED
If you are a BS27-based* business, you can have a listing like those in these sections free of charge if you send over your details using the submission form. This service is intended for bona-fide retail or service businesses with postal addresses in the BS27 area, not for internet affiliate, personal “myspace/facebook”, reseller or multi-level/network marketing type setups. Business category groups may change over time. To increase your visibility, and to support the continued operation of the site, please also consider a paid-for display advert or page sponsorship – click here for more details. If you run a business in Cheddar please join the Cheddar Traders’ Association to stay informed of local trade news and events.
