Shop local business directory
A new business directory to showcase the best of Telford’s high streets to celebrate the re-opening of shops and businesses as the borough battles back from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The exciting project aims to promote retailers and their businesses as they re-open their doors. Business owners on the high streets of Dawley, Oakengates, Wellington, Ironbridge, Madeley and Newport are being invited to submit their details to be featured in the directory so people can find out about the services they offer - including any new services they are offering in response to the crisis and how they are supporting the local community.
