Business in Blandford
Based in North Dorset, with road links to Dorchester, Wimborne, Shaftesbury and Salisbury, Blandford is well located within Dorset.
The town centre has a few national chains, but the majority of businesses are local firms, many who have been established in the town for years. And they are successful because of their excellent customer service and wide range of products and services.
Blandford town centre has the traditional feel, partly because on street parking is available and partly because of the number of essential shops – 2 butchers and a supermarket. All of which can be accessed easily from a free car park a lovely 5 minute walk along the river.
And Blandford benefits from several other business areas, of varying sizes. Whether just inside or outside the bypass, there are a huge number of national businesses who have chosen to have a base in Blandford.
This has resulted in almost full employment within the area, a reflection on the skilled and able people who live in Blandford and its surrounding area.
