Shop locally…

There are so many fantastic independent retailers in Canterbury to find affordable gifts for all the family. For your siblings who are into gaming, why not pop into Level-Up Games on the King’s Mile to find retro consoles and Pokemon plushies. For your significant other who’s into vintage records, check out Vinylstore Jr on Castle Street for new releases and classic albums for their collection. Don't forget that you can use your Totem Card or College ID to get your student discount in Whitefriars and while you're there why not check out the lovely Christmas market they have on, too!
