During this difficult time, it’s important to support local businesses.

The Hampshire Chronicle and Winchester BID (Business Improvement District) have teamed-up to shine a light on those businesses still operating at this time and the services they are offering.


The Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is affecting us all and this is a difficult and challenging time while we follow the government’s guidance to stay at home as much as possible to help control the virus and save lives – please use this page to find out about how you can support your local businesses and which in Winchester city centre are open for essential goods or offering home delivery and online shopping.

We have collated a useful list of businesses below for the city centre, but other lists are also available. Philip Clark has created a website which lists businesses in Winchester which are open for essential goods or offering home delivery and online shopping which is regularly updated: winchesterlocal.uk

Hampshire Fare have also collated information on local producers and retailers which are offering home delivery and online shopping: hampshirefare.co.uk.
