102

Local business across leek who are part of totally locally leek have joined together to create online shopping. Non essential business can still offer click and collect and totally locally leek have created a platform which allows local businesses to sell online during the lockdown period. You can shop from independent local businesses in a virtual high street online.

Leek is one of three pilot towns nationally to online local shop.

A spokesperson for totally locally said:

“If you’re in The LEEK area you may have received a cool postcard showing you the Leek High Street online. HUGE THANKS to Dave Swarbrook for doing this for us, we REALLY appreciate it!

We have seen a big increase in website visits and sales over the last couple of weeks, so it’s clear that people are keen to shop locally and continue to do so over lockdown despite the pull from big brands online.

We have 3 pilot towns for the high street online venture and we are so very close to introducing the next few, it’s all very exciting.”
