Welcome to the website of the Abergavenny Chamber of Trade and Commerce. If you delve deeper into its pages you will quickly appreciate that Abergavenny is not just a charming market town on the edge of the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park and close to the picturesque Welsh Marches. As you learn more about this sought after part of north Monmouthshire, you will realise that the area has so much more to offer than just interesting historical sites, breathtaking mountains and remarkable ancient castles, fabulous though they may be.
In fact, Abergavenny is a busy, functional commercial centre and the Usk Valley area is home to many successful and exceptional businesses in a broad variety of sectors. Across the county a superb selection of shops, services, professionals, consultants, entrepreneurs and trades people are offering an unrivalled choice of unique benefits to the local population.
The strength behind Abergavenny's business success is the high proportion of individual and independent businesses that serve the region. It is part of our mission to preserve and encourage as much as possible of this private enterprise in the town and surrounding areas. In the long term, we hope that ultimately buyers will find they no longer need to look outside the locality to satisfy their commercial requirements, and while we are quick to acknowledge the need to stay in tune with modern business and shopping trends we are working hard to preserve a varied, vibrant and successful high street.
Finding businesses and services
As well as its range of splendid shops, Abergavenny has a thriving business community that spreads far beyond the high street. One of the benefits of modern IT capability is that many businesses can now operate from rural premises, but inevitably they run the risk of being invisible to some. This website has been established as an accessible resource for local people and businesses to use, so that every local commercial enterprise can be easily located and contacted. To browse our business directory, please click here.
This website is funded and managed by Abergavenny Chamber of Trade but all local businesses, whether they are members or not, are eligible to be listed here, so if you know of a business that should be added to our directory please contact us to provide us with the details. However, Chamber of Trade members are entitled to have an enhanced listing that includes a link to their own website and a profile of the company and we recommend all local businesses to apply for membership to ensure they benefit from the Chamber's size, strength and connections.
