Love Loughborough’s own online High Street Shop is the place to go for January Sales.
Last year Love Loughborough BID launched its first ever e-commerce website, offering online high street retail with a distinctly local twist. The new site shop.loveloughborough.co.uk currently features online purchase, collection and delivery services from a host of local businesses ranging from food and drink, gifts, home & fashion, arts & crafts and health & beauty.
With shops closed and Christmas money still to spend why not spend it online while still supporting our local High Street. We have some great local businesses on the platform that have some great offers, discounts and savings for you to tap into from the comfort of your own home. Familiar faces from the Loughborough streets feature on the site including Loughborough’s favorites such as Fleurs en Fleur & George Hill alongside some amazing independents including Peg, The Cleaning Cabinet, Urban Sanctuary spa and Sunflowers Furniture with more be added week by week.
This all-new local e-commerce site is serving as a vital service to the local public during lockdown and to our wonderful businesses whilst they remain shut. With both click and collect and local delivery available it is enabling our local businesses to give customers the opportunity to purchase their goods and services online all in one place.
Love Loughborough have also launched its local Gift Voucher shop which enables customers to purchase vouchers which can be spent in participating Loughborough businesses once restrictions are eased to encourage shopping local, perfect with Valentine’s day just around the corner!
With continually challenging tier and lockdown measures, local high streets have never been so important. Lez Cope-Newman chair of the BID explains: “This is a very difficult period for the high street right now, but we have seen a great return to shopping local since Covid hit us with people exploring their local high streets and discovering and buying from their community shops. We wanted to make it easier for shoppers to shop online at our local shops”.
Lisa Brown, Love Loughborough BID Manager said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for customers to support our local businesses whilst also staying safe. Instead of defaulting to Amazon for your purchases – check out shop.loveloughborough.co.uk and explore the wide range of gifts and experiences on offer. We have over 40 businesses already on the platform with more signing up weekly!”
