Silk Sisters in Otley’s Manager Jeanne Trutch “"ShopAppy has created a great deal of interest since its launch in Otley in December. For me it is a fantastic solution for busy people who want to shop local but do not have time. It also gives me the opportunity to promote items and offers to the residents of Otley, some of whom will also visit the shop to see the selection and quality of goods available.”

Dipak Patel, owner and manager of Saltaire Wines says "Working with has been great for my business already. Being known as the single click and collect point has raised my profile and it has provided a welcome boost for evening trade. I am really pleased to be part of a scheme that makes it easier for our customers to shop local more often."

Mandi and Paul Binns of Paul Binns Quality Butchers in Saltaire says "As butchers we compete like other independents with supermarkets and mega websites for our local customers. But unlike them, we know where our products come from, age, farmer, breed basically what we call in the trade a "passport" which enables full traceability of everything we offer. We use local suppliers and live in the area. We are delighted to be part of something that could change in the way we all shop, a site which gives a feel of a supermarket but is on your local high street and independent. Most of all we are happy that ShopAppy will help us to make more of our local residents aware of what they can buy on their doorstep."

Peter Jackson, Pub landlord of the Otley Tavern comments “we were delighted to join ShopAppy and offer the click and collect service. As a supporter of local shops we saw this as an ideal opportunity to offer Otley residents the out of hours shopping facility. Working residents are limited to shopping local but ShopAppy now gives them the opportunity to purchase from their local shops and collect their goods on the way home from work at the Otley tavern.”

Peter Mudge, Manager of the Otley BID says “I have been hoping for years that an attractive application could be found to make it easy to buy from local shops when you are not in the area. offers this and helped Otley enjoy one of its best ever Christmas in terms of shopper numbers.”
