This High Street Online project is our next, and logical step in helping to keep the UK’s independent shops and towns thriving.
We hope Brighouse can lead the way once again with Totally Locally in this way.
The site is being currently populated by local businesses, and there will be an official launch with press and media soon.
IF YOU ARE A BUSINESS & WOULD LIKE A SHOP ON
BRIGHOUSE’S INDEPENDENT HIGH STREET ON-LINE PLEASE READ BELOW
WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?
Since lockdown, people have shifted a lot of their shopping online. The winners have been the big supermarkets and Amazon. It has been a huge change in the way people shop – and it’s not going back to how it was – ever!
Even when shopping locally, customers now want to browse online first to see what’s available and turn up to buy what they have for the most part already chosen – listing your products online will allow them to do this and keep more money in your town’s local economy.
Many small shops have been slow in the uptake of an online shop. Those that have them are often hidden on page 4 of Google.
So we decided to put the independent businesses of a town in one place online. So a shopper who wants to support their local high street and independent businesses can now do so easily using just one website, shopping from many different shops and pay in one secure payment. Shops can then offer click & collect or delivery (joint delivery coming soon).
It’s all about connection to the place you live, harnessing the power of local people, who realise that supporting their local high street makes their town a better place to live, work and visit.
WHO CAN APPLY?
Any independent business in the Brighouse (HD6) area. As well as shops, you can be an artist, a broker, a plumber – anything as long as you are independent and in the Brighouse area.
It’s all about the contribution to the local economy.
The more shops onboard, the more reason people have to visit the site, the more chance shops have of thriving, especially in these new unchartered times.
A shop on the Totally Locally Shop site is really easy to set up. We had one person who had never done anything like it set one up in half an hour.
Have a good read of the online instructions here that guide you through the whole process, and you should be up & running in no time.
A shop on this page is free until 2021. After that it will be £3 per week. There is no contract, so you can leave at any time, you are not committed to staying.
Either click the button below & we’ll get back to you, or follow the easy steps underneath that. No hassle, no contract, no hidden nasties, no payment ’til 2021 (and you can leave any time if you don’t think it’s working for you). Simple.
