If you’ve still got a few last-minute Christmas gifts to buy, why not consider supporting the local community and shopping small this year? At PB Home Solutions, we’ve lived and worked in East Devon almost all our lives. We feel proud to have built a great relationship with our local clients and fellow independents. Our familiar presence on Seaton high street means a lot to us. However, with the rising cost of living, many local independents are inevitably going to feel the pinch. Shopping small is a great way to support the friends and neighbours behind our local businesses, helping keep our high streets vibrant and bustling.
