WITH its specialist shops, indoor and outdoor markets and good places to eat, Stevenage has something to offer everyone.
And it is not just the town centre where you are sure to find just what you are looking for. Stevenage also benefits from neighbourhood shopping precincts, such as The Glebe, The Hyde and The Oval, which can cater for your every need.
And with plans in the pipeline for a �500m redevelopment of the town centre, the retail future of Stevenage looks even brighter.
But independent traders still need your support, particularly during the current economic climate. That is why The Comet's Buy Local campaign is fully supported by Stevenage Town Centre Management Company.
Tracey Parry, Stevenage town centre manager, said: "At the end of the day, in order to ensure a town centre remains viable people have to support it.
"There are a lot of town centres where shops are closing. We are actually below the national average for empty units and there are plans in the pipeline for new store openings."

She added: "Buying locally keeps local people in their jobs, cuts down on travel costs and reduces the effects of pollution.
"Stevenage town centre is the civic heart of the town, a place where local people come to work, shop, and socialise.
Supporting your town centre will ensure that it remains a vibrant and viable part of the community.
