Independent retailers now have access to a new delivery service allowing customers to shop locally from any part of the UK.
Virtual high street service, Click It Local is currently available across the UK with next-day and same-day delivery available in some areas. Over 1300 businesses have signed up for the service so far, which delivers over 20,000 different products to more than 500 areas in the UK.
Steve Koch, co-founder of Click It Local said: “Our aim has always been to support local and independent shops. By creating a platform where every local and independent retailer in the UK can be in one place and providing those retailers with same-day delivery service on a national scale, we are enabling independents to compete with the bigger competition like Amazon, whilst still offering the same level of service and convenience that customers have come to expect.”
Through the service customers can order from any local or independent shop signed up and have their goods delivered to them the next day if the order is placed before 1pm, with one payment and one delivery fee if bought from the same location.
Click It Local started in Cambridge last year, and its success saw it grow in Brighton, Essex, Surrey, Hertfordshire, and London.
Koch is encouraging customers to support their local high street by continuing to shop local and for independent businesses across the UK to sign-up for the service.
