ShopAppy Taking Off in Derbyshire

There’s an innovative new way of shopping rolling out nationally that is helping to support local shops and services during these difficult times. And it’s really taking off in Derbyshire.

ShopAppy.com is a website which allows shops, cafés, restaurants and other local businesses, services and community organisations to sell online.

Shoppers can browse, book and buy, with local shops and services displayed together in a single town page, allowing customers to buy from their favourite local shops in a single transaction.

It also allows businesses to offer different options including click and collect from a central location, goods delivered to the door or collected from the store.

To support local businesses, Derbyshire County Council and the eight district and borough councils are funding free unlimited use of the website for any Derbyshire small business until Tuesday, 30 November, 2021. The sooner a business signs up, the longer the period of free membership they get.

For some businesses, that don’t have an online presence, the scheme has provided a digital lifeline to help compete with national retailers and stay afloat during the pandemic.

The county council’s Cabinet Member for Clean Growth and Regeneration, Councillor Tony King, said: “There are now more than 300 businesses across the county signed up to ShopAppy.com offering our residents a safe and convenient way to shop while helping to strengthen our local towns and villages.

“I’d encourage people to shop this way and for any businesses that are interested to get in touch and get on board.”

Derbyshire County Council's website has a dedicated Derbyshire ShopAppy page for businesses to find out more.
