Shop local and park for free in run-up to Christmas!

(Last Updated On: December 10, 2019)

As we count down the number of shopping days to Christmas, Teignbridge District Council has some heart-warming offers for folk who want to support local businesses and save on parking fees.

Late-night shopping on Wednesdays in Newton Abbot features free parking from 4.00 pm on 11 and 18 December at the following car parks:

Osborne Street, Halcyon Road, Cattle Market, Wolborough Way, Venture Court.

Parking is also free across ALL of Teignbridge District Council’s car parks on the two remaining Sundays before Christmas – 15 and 22 December. Newton Abbot Market Hall will be open 9am-3pm on Sunday 22 December, along with extra outdoor markets from Friday 20 to Tuesday 24 December.

So, whether you’re shopping in towns large or small – or any of the villages in-between – there are shopping and parking deals to be done.

If you’re one of those people who leave gift buying to the very last minute, you could get some late bargains from some of the many shops in the district that will be open on these two Sundays.

Remember, local shops can help you find the ideal gift at good value prices, long after the online retailers have gone past their latest posting date.
So shop local, park for free and support the retailers who are the backbone of our high streets. That way, everyone’s a winner in Teignbridge this Christmas!
