ShopAppy provides a collective online shop window for every member town and village, encouraging customers to shop locally, browse and visit, book, or buy with easy click and collect after hours and home delivery.
The platform is not just about shops. ShopAppy can help services, trades, B2B businesses, chefs, pop-ups, entertainers, and market stalls with bookings, click and collect, home delivery and can host virtual events to support local artists and producers to secure wider engagement.
ShopAppy is already established in 150 UK towns and growing rapidly. There are reports of sales increases of 82% in some member businesses. The platform gives local businesses the tools to fight back with an effective and engaging online presence – increasing (digital) footfall and spend. It is quick and simple to use for both businesses and customers.
Although many people have turned to large online companies for shopping during the pandemic, it seems many UK consumers are now also keen to support their local businesses through the crisis too. ShopAppy is now trying to make this much easier for local businesses and for shoppers.
