|About||This page is all about the delights of shopping in Claygate (The Claygate Lifestyle Experience) and promoting Claygate shops.|
Claygate is a runner-up in the 2016 Great British High Street Competition. It is blessed with a fantastic range of really great shops (60); unrivalled by any village of comparable size in this part of the country. Established over 100 years ago, Claygate shops have not only survived, they've flourished, as businesses in surrounding local centres have shrunk and disappeared in the face of relentless growth of characterless shopping malls and supermarkets.
Shopping in Claygate is traditional shopping made easy and as a result, is simply a pleasure. Offering a very personal service, our local shops cater for almost every need, both everyday and more specialised - you can do virtually all your shopping in one relaxing go, with none of the impersonal frenzy of big supermarkets. or town centre shopping. You're very likely to bump into people you know and have time for a chat, perhaps a relaxing coffee, in the time you save from driving to places farther afield.
Using your local shops, rather than the larger, out of town supermarkets is a great way of supporting our vibrant community in these trouble economic times: its a recognition of the interdependence of local residents and business owners. working together, now and in the future, we can guarentee that Claygate will remain the very special place it is today.
Individually, our shops are striving to be even more attractive; to offer even better personal service; to whet the appetites of Clayagte people and, indeed, of those living in neighbouring areas who are less fortunate than we Claygatians in having such great shops in the very heart of our community.
So before you think of setting off for a depressing drive to a crowded, impersonal, shopping centre, think Claygate! Look forward to enjoying the experience. It really is unique.
