Individual Retailers

Part of the attraction of any ‘retail therapy’ is discovering something different filled with charm and character that you’re sure to fall in love with! Independent shops in Lancashire like Carnforth Book Shop, Live Like the Boy and The Regent all give a sense of mystery to what shopping delights you may discover. The renowned Carnforth Bookshop in Lancaster sells a variety of products including in excess of 100,000 books spread over 14 rooms to explore the rich and diverse collections.

Many shops are family run and have been handed down from generation to generation ensuring the quality and consistency from the good old days and secret family recipes.

Boutique shops often hunt through suppliers to be able to provide the unique and quality goods that are ultimatly individual and a fantastic alternative from the high street. Many of the independent shops will use local suppliers and as such, this helps the local economy thrive.

Here is Lancashire there is a wide and sometimes quirky choice of retailers including The Wool Boat. This floating yarn shop offers a unique shopping experience selling a range of hand knitted garments, greetings cards and even knitting supplies to have a go yourself!
