Coronavirus Plan From Yorkshire Coast D-BID

Coronavirus Plan From Yorkshire Coast D-BID

Published by Jon Burke at 9:44am 26th March 2020.

The Yorkshire Coast D-BID scheme has joined forces with another organisation, to help businesses, during the coronavirus outbreak.

Yorkshire in Business says it will be supporting businesses in partnership with the multi-award winning digital platform ShopAppy.com in light of the Covid-19 outbreak to enable local communities to choose to shop local even if they need to stay at home.

The ShopAppy.com platform enables local businesses in the Yorkshire coast area to sell products and special packages in one place online. Yorkshire coast locals can make purchases from local independent shops, restaurants via the website or buy E-vouchers to use at a later date.

Yorkshire in Business, headed by Jenn Crowther, England’s High Street Champion 2019, is offering its services by providing on the ground support with tailored approaches from implementation to maximising opportunities for businesses in Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington to help spread the word to the local community.

Chief Executive at Yorkshire in Business, Jenn Crowther, said:

“On Monday this week businesses saw a decline in customers overnight, causing a huge amount of uncertainty and concern about their future, many of whom were not prepared. We have expanded our support to businesses on the ground to cope with increased demand and feel that this platform is a great opportunity for businesses to reach customers during this time.”

Businesses can gain 3 months free use of the platform and with backing from Yorkshire Coast BID, levy paying businesses can receive 12 months free subscription.

Chief Executive, at Yorkshire Coast BID, Kerry Carruthers, said:

“Our role is to support our business members and promote the coast. We have acted quickly to get this partnership with ShopAppy.com off the ground and support the general public with supplies from the Yorkshire Coast’s amazing independents straight to their door.

In addition to offering products for immediate purchase, residents will be able to order ‘buy now, use later’ E-vouchers from local businesses, in particular from service-based businesses like hairdressers, beauty salons, restaurants, bars and cafes that could see numbers drop as people are required to social distance or self-isolate.

I urge the general public to use the new ShopAppy.com service and support our amazing independent business sector."

Businesses that wish to get involved should email jenn@yorkshireinbusiness.org.uk or call 01723 588000.
