The nationally-advertised platform, which launched on March 7, is designed to help high street stores recover from the pandemic. It not only allows shoppers to find out which retailers they are ‘near to’ and encourages them to explore shops which are local to where they live or are visiting, but also enables them to shop further afield – knowing they are still supporting independent traders.

The platform allows shoppers to find out contact details and directions of stores they are ‘near to’, as well as allowing retailers to create their own online presence or integrate location details with stores’ existing online sales platforms. The British Independent Retailers Association (Bira) has launched the site in order to support the High Street and help independent stores to recover from the pandemic by moving to a ‘hybrid’ model of retailing.
