Click It Local – a virtual high street!

The Importance of Supporting your Local Independents?

There are several great reasons to shop from your local independents rather than spending your cash with the giant retailers out there.

Preserve the unique and individual character of your towns and villages. A high street with varied people sharing their passions makes your high street a place to visit.

When you spend money with a local independent your coins stay in the local community. Imagine when you buy things from Amazon – a lot of that money will stay within the bank accounts of giant corporations.

Did you know that small independent businesses are some of the UK’s biggest employers. By supporting local you are helping create jobs right here in your community.

With no overseas travel or long truck journeys, the majority of local food and produce does not negatively impact the environment.

Click It Local, is a virtual high street that enables shoppers to buy from any independent shop from the local high street and have it delivered straight to their door on the same day. Our mission is to help save local high streets across the UK by making shopping local easier and faster than using the likes of Amazon.
