MP urges shoppers to support independent stores

by Tom Martin (August 2022)

SOUTHPORT MP Damien Moore is urging shoppers to continue supporting local and independent businesses.

It follows a visit to the recently opened Dram Gift Shop, on Botanic Road, in Churchtown, which specialises in whiskey.

Mr Moore met with owner Darren Boyd-Preece to find out more about the store.

The MP is now encouraging the town’s residents to continue to support the independent village shops across Southport.

He said: “It is always fantastic to visit new local businesses, and it was a real pleasure to meet Darren and see his shop’s unique offer. I’m delighted to see that the business is doing well, with many exciting ideas for the future.

“Botanic Road is an iconic and historic part of both Churchtown and Southport’s identity, and it was great to hear how welcoming the whole community has been.

“I'd encourage everyone to stop by and see the wide range of products on offer, and support another local small business in such a wonderful part of our town.”
