Local Shops for Christmas Gifts

With only 2 shopping Saturdays left til Christmas – Here are some ideas about where you can buy thoughtful gifts for family members from actual local shops in Blackpool.

Shoppers on Church Street

Get Your Skate on

Starting off with something sporty – Big Woody’s skate shop has been at the back-bone of Blackpool’s extreme sports scene for decades. It endured a painful period whilst development works saw Talbot road decimated for what felt like a lifetime – this shop sprang a new lease of life further along Talbot road close to the old Devonshire road hospital site.

One of the main benefits of this location is the free parking space available close-by which is handy if one was to nip to collect an item. It’s also close to many stops for main bus routes going into and through Blackpool.

You can find a wide range of accessories for skating and BMX biking too.


Something different?

from charms and pendants to posters and bags – this shop has a great selection of items that you’d struggle to find elsewhere.

Here’s a sneak peek inside for anyone who has never seen what’s on offer. This shop used to be a stall on Abingdon Street Market before it was forced to relocate opposite the market.
