At a time when many high streets are emptying due to a combination of parking restrictions and high rents and rates, and the spread of big chain-stores, Ilminster is incredibly lucky to have a vibrant town centre of mostly independent merchants.  Here’s a list of some of our favourite businesses for you to patronize when you’re here.  Additionally there is a wide range of professional services including accountants, solicitors, an optometrist and dentist.
