How it works

Shopappy works by enabling local independent shops and businesses to show information, products and services they have for sale in your town or city in one place. Shopappy aims to encourage you to go into town and use the shops and businesses nearby. But sometimes you do not have time. The site brings all of the products and services together into categories so you can search for items easily or you can choose to look at the products in your favourite shops instead.

If you choose to shop online then when you are ready to pay for your goods, you are given a choice of whether you would like to click and collect from each shop you purchased from, or whether you would prefer to just pick up all your shopping from one place or if you would like your item delivered. Whatever you choose, the shops pack part of your order and then you can go to the collection point to collect your shopping in one place or can await your home delivery - order by 12 noon for delivery next day. In addition there are options to book things and order items for postage to loved ones near and far

Shopappy.com has been driven by customers who want to make shopping locally easier online, but we also know that the independent shops and businesses in your town, love to see and meet customers. This means that we are happy if you just want to browse, or browse and save a shopping list and then decide to take a trip into the high street or market later.

Anything you spend online, except bank processing charges, goes to your local businesses. So it works because together we can help our local independent shops to stay in our towns. It is hard for them in a world of online giants and supermarkets. We prefer a world and a future where local shops, local businesses and local communities support each other.

Shopappy works because of the independent businesses you see before you, and because of their customers - that's you. So thank you for visiting.

Now we are available in over 100 towns and cities in the UK and are working with more partners to ensure we have happy people, happy places and a happy planet - get in touch if you are interested in hearing more on info@shopappy.com and we have just launched www.shoplocalonline.org so if you can't find what you want locally, support another real place somewhere else in the UK and make someone's day!
