High Street retailers, town centres and small independents are having a Christmas season like no other – and we want to help them reach new customers during lockdown.
What would normally be the busiest weeks of the year in the run-up to Christmas, high streets are instead shuttered up until lockdown lifts on December 2.
That’s why we are giving local businesses the chance to get their name in front of our readers – for FREE.
And we’re calling on readers to put their money where it matters when it comes to buying presents this year and pledge to spend your Christmas cash with local traders.
We launched the first phase of our Order Local campaign earlier this month, asking readers to support local restaurants and bars by treating themselves to a takeaway.
We also offered free online listings to hospitality businesses to advertise their lockdown services.
Now we’re extending that offer to shops – and calling on readers to get behind them too.
We’ve teamed up with our sister site InYourArea and ReachPLC titles around the country to create a free search tool where you can find local shops offering delivery or click and collect services near you.
So if YOUR shop is operating a delivery or click and collect service during lockdown, then you can fill in the form below to be added to the search tool.
If the form doesn’t display on your device, use this link instead.
It’s completely free to list your business and it will then start to appear for some of the 500,000 people across the UK who use InYourArea each day, and millions more across our websites and Reach PLC’s regional titles across the country.
You can help spread the word by sharing a picture of your purchases on InYourArea and on social media with the hashtag #OrderLocal.
