As we all adapt to the Covid restrictions, we're acutely aware that everyone is having to adapt the way we live, work and shop.
Our Town Centre Regeneration Team has been working to bring an online platform to the area for some time
We're with you all the way...That's why we've joined forces with ShopAppy.com to launch a one stop virtual high street for local businesses, enabling you to continue trading safely even when your doors are closed.
What is ShopAppy?
ShopAppy.com provides a collective online shop window and ordering service for every member town and village. Over 150 areas have already signed up across the UK, with many more joining every week. The platform is supported by Visa as part of its #Whereyoushopmatters campaign.
Having ShopAppy.com means your customers can support your local High Street from the comfort of their sofa. They can browse, book, buy, and get a convenient home delivery from independent shops and businesses in your area with one simple checkout.
How does it work?
ShopAppy is free to businesses, and it's easy to use, even for sole traders. All you need to do is create your own profile with help from the ShopAppy.com team and you can start uploading products from your phone, tablet or laptop.

Can I do click and collect?
You can opt to offer click & collect – either from your own premises or a collection point and / or offer delivery (customer pays for this)
How do I get involved?
It's easy to get started. Just click this link to register and the ShopAppy team will be in touch
What happens next?
Look out for ShopAppy posts over the next few weeks as businesses join the scheme. We'll be running a full PR and marketing campaign to support all our local traders and help everyone shop local from the comfort of their own homes. We've got our first few shops live on the ShopAppy sites for Stewarton, Kilmarnock and Galston. They'll be joined by many more shortly. You can visit them here
