About Buy Boro

Buying local is fantastic for Middlesbrough. It supports local families, creates local jobs, and keeps our hard-earned money right here in the local area.

We all want to support our locals, but when you’re pressed for time – which most of us are – it can be difficult to find what you need, when you need it.

That’s where #BuyBoro comes in. Our #BuyBoro directory is the place to look for independent businesses in Middlesbrough, it’s easy to use and has the big, added benefit of supporting local people.

The coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on us all, and now more than ever local businesses need our backing. It might not be possible to #BuyBoro all the time, but every purchase you can make will mean the world to the people behind the business.

Buying something is the most obvious show of support, but there are so many other ways to make a difference. You can follow local businesses on social media and comment on their posts, write a positive review, tell your friends and family about them – every little helps!

We hope you come across some great businesses through our directory. If there’s anyone we’ve missed and/or you’ve had a positive experience, tell us all about it by emailing buyboro@middlesbrough.gov.uk. Make sure you send photos and we’ll promote it on social media.

Thank you and happy shopping!
