Independent traders create 'Christmas Crawl Map' to entice customers

Independent traders have clubbed together to produce a "Christmas Crawl Map" in Exeter to draw in customers this Christmas. Thirty independently owned shops and cafes are featured on the map.

Organisers say they're well aware that there'll be plenty of new Christmas shoppers following the opening of John Lewis this autumn and they're keen to get their stores noticed too.
