Our first digital venture is now live. We’re currently testing our online marketplace local.co.uk, allowing small independent sellers to reach customers locally.
Local.co.uk is the first of our digital ventures we are testing. It forms part of our ambition to disrupt markets with Digital business models as part of our ventures proposition.
Handcrafted products, made locally
Local.co.uk offers a selection of handcrafted, locally made products from retro prints to dog collars and scented candles. These hyper-local, hard to find products are perfect gift choices or just an excuse to treat yourself.
Our makers are passionate about their products, spending hours finessing them. This is what makes them unique and stand out.
Boosting your local economy
By buying these products, the money stays in the local economy, benefiting your community. You know you’re helping someone local to you in the U.K. who’s made the product.
We’re working with makers in the North West of England at the moment and planning to expand to other areas of the country soon. If you know of any local makers you think would like to list on local.co.uk, ask them to get in touch with us.
