SEVERAL stores in Barry have joined up to a shop local campaign offering amazing deals at just £10.

Shops including Karry’s Deli, Academy Drive Through, Crafted Arts, My Favourite Pet Shop and Monty and Vito’s Diner are offering a range of items in a special £10 package (full list of the shops involved and what they have to offer at the bottom of the article).

Barry joined the Totally Locally Magic Tenner campaign on Saturday, October 7, and it will run until Saturday, October 21.

The scheme is part of Totally Locally, a shop local campaign that describes itself as "more than a shop local campaign".

It started out as a small idea in the North of England and has grown into a multi-award-winning worldwide movement.

Groups of volunteers in towns and areas use a “Town Kit”, following guidelines and using templates and a full event strategy, and use it to make their town a stronger, more vibrant and resilient place. 

All the organisers ask for for this is if someone comes up with a new idea, it is shared with everyone else.

There is now a network of Totally Locally towns across the world, sharing ideas, working together and making a difference to their independent businesses – and Barry is one of them.

Mayor of Barry, Cllr Ian Johnson, said: “Barry Town Council’s Shop Local campaign is about promoting our local shopping areas, including Holton Road, High Street, Park Crescent, Cadoxton and the GoodSheds.

“Campaigns such as the Totally Locally Magic Tenner are great opportunities for people to get a good bargain and for shop owners to promote what they’ve got on offer.

“The advantage of a local shop is that you get so much more of a personal experience. That’s why so many Barry businesses were nominated for the recent Vale Business Awards, including Karry’s Deli and Crafted Arts, who both have good value deals in October’s Magical Tenner."

Cllr Johnson went on to emphasie that barry is a great shopping destination.

“Barry’s a great place for quality independent shops, so pop along and see what offers they’ve got on.”
