Shopping locally for baby items is a great idea for many reasons.

Here are my top ten reasons for shopping locally for baby items

1) When you are pregnant   for the first time  you can get information overload and not quite know what you need to buy. A local store will have the time to talk you through the essentials you will need and this will help you save money in the long run.

2) If an item you have breaks or needs replacing you can probably sort this out immediately rather than having to send something away.

3) You can have a good play with the items you are interested in  to see if they are right for you

4) you can also have a good feel of fabrics and materials to make sure they are as soft as you would like them to be

5) It’s really nice to include family and friends when seeking out thew perfect pram of baby bouncer so taking them along to browse with you can be a lovely way of sharing the excitement

6) Local nursery good stores often hold lots of information about things to do locally with your baby

7) Some nursery goods stores will even put on baby activity classes.

8) Unlike other stores nursery good stores will often be adapted so you can easily take your baby there to shop for what they need. Stores like mycribrocks.co.uk have gone out of their way to make sure a parents shopping experience with their baby is comfortable and accessible with wider aisles and suitable amenities.

9) Older relatives will sometimes be reluctant to shop online so if you know what you want form a local store you can still get what you want and they can properly see what it is they are buying.

10) It is important to support local shops and businesses so we keep monies circulating in our local economy and help independent business owners thrive. It can also be cheaper sometimes to shop this way if you factor in no shipping!
