Amazing Local Businesses in Dorset You Should Check Out
It’s more important now than ever that we come together and support local businesses after the pandemic. The past year and a half have placed an immense strain on those trying to manage their business, whether that’s keeping up with having the kids at home or simply just working remotely.
Now the local restrictions are finally lifting, we are able to get back out there and bring our businesses to life once again. This is the perfect time to support these local businesses after a long period of quiet. So, here are some great local choices you might just be interested in checking out for yourself:
Loved Garms Clothing
Loved Garm Clothing is your place to go if you are looking for funky, handmade clothing for all the family. Having been up and running for over 5 years now, Hannah’s main inspiration is her children, and she has used this to create an amazing eco-friendly business that everyone is sure to love.
All garments are designed and individually made for the customer and sent out in plastic-free packaging. There’s nothing better than knowing the clothes you are wearing are supporting a local business and keeping the environment a happier and healthier place.

Nails by Luna
This exciting local business is one that emerged during the pandemic! Nails by Luna provides luxury manicures, pedicures, acrylics and many more services tailored for all nail types. Luna’s desire to set an example for her daughter; that you don’t need to be miserable at work to make a living, and of course her love for nails, inspired her to get qualified and start the business.
Luna’s ethos is centered around the idea that you should leave a place in a better state than it was when you started, and she employs this in all areas of her work. The treatments always prioritise the health and integrity of natural nails and aim to minimise environmental impact through waste.
Not only does Nails by Luna give you the nails you’ve always dreamed of but provides a safe space for those who are still figuring out their identity and want to express themselves. If you are interested in finding out more then go check her Instagram out!
PGPT – Pippa Grover Personal Training
The pandemic has left a lot of people feeling confused and overwhelmed when it comes to working out after over a year without gyms or much outside activity. That’s where Pippa Grover Personal Training comes in! Pippa provides face-to-face personal training, based in her home gym in Corfe Mullen. She is also doing online coaching for those who wish to train at home or in a commercial gym but don’t know how to get the most out of their workouts.
Having experienced an unhealthy relationship with her body and food, Pippa worked with a PT to improve her life, and it did just that! This inspired her to teach others that being fit really means having flexibility, mobility, and keeping your body running happily.
Pippa lives by the motto “movement is medicine”. She encourages all her clients to move their bodies in a way that makes them feel good. Perhaps you’re struggling with confidence? Or maybe you don’t know where to start? Or perhaps you just fancy some guidance, Pippa Grover Personal Training is an amazing choice!
