The owners of two North Devon delicatessens are urging people to stick with local businesses for their shopping this festive season.
Sue and Anthony Johns, of Johns of Instow and Appledore, are advocates of North Devon suppliers, with their shops bustling with everything from Instow honey to East Buckland Christmas puddings.
Sue said: “It’s nice to get a personal service when you’re doing your Christmas shopping.
“A supermarket would not go out to source a certain sort of potato for your Christmas lunch, but a local independent shop like us would.
