Southsea Lifestyle – Free Magazine for Southsea, Old Portsmouth, Eastney & Gunwharf Quays

Shop local this Christmas

With an average of 14 high street shops closing across the UK every day, including some big name stores, it goes without saying that our local retailers need our support more than ever. No doubt towns and cities will evolve and empty retail space will take on different uses, but it’s likely to be a slow and painful process. Let’s try to keep the amazing variety of shops we already have in Portsmouth & Southsea, large and small. Here are a selection of just a few of the gorgeous gifts that can be bought around town this Christmas.
