We are a family business trying to help independent local shops to compete with the large online retailers and national chains whilst offering convenience to local residents. We have developed a concept that we want to bring to towns and cities in the U.K., that feel they need more support for their independent local shops.
Can’t get to the shops? Are you at work or housebound during the day? Shop at your independent local shops in one place, one local shopping website. Get your fresh meat from the local butcher, a bottle of wine, something new to wear, something nice for your home, food and household essentials, or chose from a wide range of gift ideas be it for birthday, anniversary, wedding or a party.
Search for what you need, or browse through the shops. Combine products from different shops into just one order, one payment and select the most suitable delivery option. How about the same day local delivery? All local deliveries are within a 10-mile radius of Stamford and Oakham, delivered to your door, by us and with a smile. If you change your mind you can also enjoy FREE returns. Place your order whilst on the train, on your lunch break, or from the comfort of your sofa. You can shop local, support your community, your local shops without having to compromise on convenience.
Keeping it local
Research shows that £5 spent with an independent business has a value of up to £25 to the local economy. So, the money stays in the local economy creating more jobs, sustainable businesses and a better town centre. With us, it is all about local, thus we only work with local independent shops, or locally owned and operated businesses. My Shop is Local is one big “family” full of independent, mainly family owned, shops. We work very closely with our shops, supporting and helping them all the way.
