Your Local Shops Wellington
The town centre shopping zone has continued to thrive, thanks in no small way to the many small independent traders who attract customers into the town from the surrounding areas of Somerset and Devon. A random sample of independent traders in the town centre includes The Blue Pantry for plastic-free, zero waste shopping; award-winning butcher Tim Potter and his daughter Katie’s pantry; new, used, and electric bicycle supplier King’s Cycles; pet food and pet care supplier Paws ‘n’ Claws; The Emporium, home to more than 50 shops offering thousands of home ware and gift items. There is also a Farmers Market in the town centre on the first and third Saturdays of each month, and a Craft Market in the Scout Hall on the third Saturday monthly. A myriad of other businesses also contribute to the Wellington economy and provide employment ranging from one-person home-based enterprises to major companies with several hundred employees.
