SHOPPING

There are some great places to shop in and around Bath and some are listed here.

Some of these retailers offer discounts to current members. Where this is available the details are shown on their listing. Some of them can’t do this because they are small and have been hard-hit by the Covid pandemic – some have even had to let staff go. Please give these businesses your support, be respectful and remember this… it will be better to have a shop long term than a discount in the short term.

PLEASE PRESENT YOUR MEMBERSHIP CARD BEFORE STAFF START TO PUT ANY ITEMS THROUGH THE TILL.

NO FURTHER DISCOUNTS CAN BE APPLIED TO ANY SALE ITEMS.
