Commercial Street: A Hidden Gem in Harrogate’s Shopping Scene

Even in the challenging times brought by the pandemic, Commercial Street has retained its vibrant community spirit, and we’re excited to announce that 17 of our shops are now proud members of our newly established retailers group, prominently featured on our website and social media – that’s over 70% of our bustling street!

The lockdown made it evident that people missed the chance to explore their local shops. We aim to shed light on what Commercial Street has to offer, a hidden treasure in Harrogate often overlooked and underrated. It’s the place where you can find some of the best independent shopping in town.

Since the inception of the retailers group in October, they’ve been making significant strides to put Commercial Street firmly on the Harrogate map. You can now explore our brand new website at, where you can sign up for our monthly newsletter featuring exclusive special offers. We’ve embraced technology with QR codes displayed in our members’ shop windows – sign up for our newsletter right there! We’ve even launched our own YouTube channel, taking our shopping experience to the digital realm.

In addition to these exciting developments, we’re thrilled to welcome a new shop, Foxy Antiques, located at 27 Commercial Street, right next to Books for All. Foxy Antiques and Interiors offers a truly unique shopping experience, with an eclectic selection of antiques, vintage items, retro finds, and brand new stock. At Foxy, we celebrate the unusual, and you’re sure to discover something special on each visit. A warm welcome awaits you, and the friendly staff are always ready to assist you in finding that perfect item.

Two standout aspects define Commercial Street. Firstly, our street stands out in Harrogate town centre as a haven for independent shops. With over 20 unique shops, we offer some of the most intriguing shopping experiences in town. And, if you include our three longstanding charity shops – Age UK, Shelter, and Martin House Children’s Hospice – your custom and donations have a significant impact on the community.

Secondly, it might come as a surprise that over 50% of our shops have been part of Commercial Street for over a decade. In the age of online and out-of-town shopping, and considering the challenges brought by Covid, this is truly remarkable. It’s a testament to the high level of service and expertise our shops offer.

Remember, supporting our independent shops means supporting local businesses, and in turn, that supports others and keeps money flowing in our local economy. Join us in celebrating Commercial Street, where shopping becomes an experience, and community is at the heart of it all.
