Shop local by getting ShopAppy
ShopAppy.com is now live in Burgess Hill, Cuckfield, East Grinstead, Haywards Heath, Hassocks, Hurstpierpoint and Lindfield, helping to support and promote local businesses and encourage residents to shop local.
With High Street shops fully reopened after months of uncertainty and lockdown, Burgess Hill and the key villages of Hassocks and Hurstpierpoint are now supported by ShopAppy, ensuring that residents can shop locally online, as well as in person.
Independent shops and businesses across the area can join the local shopping and business website, www.shopappy.com. The ShopAppy portal is a locally-based website that makes it easier for everyone to support the High Street from the comfort of their homes – at no extra cost. You can browse, book, buy and collect from numerous independent shops and businesses in your area with one simple checkout. Most importantly, the digital shop window influences people to visit town, so people can pre-browse to plan their trip.
Mid Sussex District Council is subsidising independent businesses across Mid Sussex to sign up to ShopAppy.com for free until March 2023. Once registered, businesses can quickly populate their own mini site with goods and services at no cost. Help is provided throughout by the ShopAppy team to help those new to technology.
ShopAppy.com is a social enterprise and a support local campaign that is supported by Visa. The digital platform was created to revive British High Streets by providing an alternative way for places and small businesses to compete with the online retail giants, allowing customers to book events and experiences as well as browse and buy local products online with delivery, or click and collect after hours.
