Two things make shopping in independents special – their unique personalities and a total dedication to their craft. You’ll find both at Natural Born Cobblers. They leave no sole unturned when it comes to skillfully repairing those kicks you can’t bear to part with. And there’s just as much to love at Chilli Shop as they fire up your shopping spree with all manner of chilli-related treats. You could put the £5 you save towards their best-selling caramelised garlic chilli oil, a sweat-tastic array of sauces, or if you’re feeling really brave, five Trinidad Scorpion dried chillis!

Glorious floral arrangements can be collected or delivered to your door courtesy of Daydreamers Flowers, while the talented team of tattooists at Rude Studios are ready to turn your skin art dreams into a reality. Been putting off sorting out that cracked phone screen or dodgy laptop? Technological wizardry is on hand at Phone + Gadget Centre where diagnostics are free, and Leeds Phone Hub is your go-to for same-day phone repairs and a glittering display of colourful accessories.

If you emerged from lockdown in dire need of a trim, your cut-price transformation awaits at Ambassador Barbering, where they’ll even take care of your unruly beard, and JR’s Gentleman’s Barbershop – don’t miss the snooze-worthy Middle Eastern head massages. Honed your cookery skills at home? Head to Sing Kee Oriental Supermarket and stock up on baskets full of Asian goodies like their yummy roasted pork buns and hard-to-find veggies like lotus root and taro. Oh, and ramen. Lots and lots of ramen.

Speaking of yumminess, just wait ’til you cop a load of the delicious independent eateries getting involved! Sneak in a sushi platter at Bubble Tea Cafe, where you can wash down your maki rolls with a fruity milk tea packed with tasty tapioca balls, or treat yourself to a Friday chippy at Hook & Line. That £5 discount is just the excuse you need to splurge on an extra serving of build-your-own cheesy chips! After a full-blown feast? Bengal Brasserie is glamorous and gorge-worthy in equal measures. Don’t miss their oh-so-tender (and enormous!) lamb chops, slathered in a secret blend of spices.
