The words shop local are more than important in these testing times for local businesses. With the CONVID-19 lock down extended for another 3 weeks, many businesses who have not shut are having to adapt how they operate in the conditions that they are all abiding by.
Andover has a brilliant array of local businesses, and many have adapted to continue operating to provide their products and services to customers.
Here at Andover Radio and Love Andover we are passionate about our town and the many businesses, which is why on April 1st we showed our support to these businesses and announced that we would not be billing our current clients and offering FREE (Not discounted or special price) advertising on Andover Radio with online advertising too.
Every day we will highlight one business a day as part of our free advertising campaign in support for our local business community.
Today we focus on David Mellor Family Jewellers:
David Mellor Family Jewellers are a real gem (Pun intended) of a local family business, based right here in Andover. With their stores temporarily closed in response to the CONVID-19 they are still operating online, taking orders via their website.
Established in 1976, David started out as a market trader and was a familiar face amongst many sites for 32 years. After 10 years of solely being a market trader, David opened his first store in Eastleigh.
In 2008 David retired from the markets and opened up the Andover store, which was originally based in Waterloo Court, and now sits proudly in the Chantry Centre.
Wife Christine and children Dan, Jim and Amy work alongside David and their team of fantastic staff to ensure your encounter with David Mellor Family Jewellers is an extremely pleasant one!
