About Shop Local Online

To support local retailers and small businesses during the Covid-19 crisis we developed A completely free directory that we hope helps struggling businesses get found by nearby customers.

Sorted by distance, shoppers can find the businesses close to them across all categories. The butcher around the corner, the bookshop in the next town, the local gym providing classes by zoom and any other innovative business working through this difficult time

Local businesses need our support, now, more than ever. Ordering from our nearest supplier - rather than defaulting to you-know-who - means we can do a small bit to support local jobs and the community.
