A new virtual high street delivery service in Epping Forest starts today.
Thursday 11 March sees the start of a new, innovative scheme to boost local businesses by encouraging residents to ‘Click It Local Epping Forest’.
Same day delivery
Residents anywhere in the district can use the new service to buy from any local shop and have it delivered on the same day.
From weekly food essentials, gifts and treats to last-minute basics, customers can buy everything they need from as many shops as they like, with 1 payment and 1 delivery.
Support our local traders and high streets
Councillor John Philip, Cabinet Member for Finance & Economic Development said:
During these uncertain and challenging times we know that local retailers need every resource available to thrive in a difficult marketplace. I am therefore pleased to announce that the council has been working with Click It Local to provide a shopping experience that allows customers to browse and purchase local goods online and have them delivered directly to their home.
I hope that as many local traders as possible will take advantage of this scheme and that residents will enjoy dis-covering the convenience and peace of mind shopping online whilst supporting our local traders and the future of our high streets.
Shop local and support independent shops
Steve Koch, founder of Click It Local added:
I love shopping locally so wanted to find a way to help small shops offer the same level of speed and convenience that today’s online customers have come to expect. Our aim is to ensure we can all continue to shop local, support independent shops and provide for the local community.
