To help small local independent merchants by encouraging the public to buy local versus the big chains.

An East Sussex community app promoting and supporting local independent businesses. I am trying to encourage locals, tourists and students in the local area, to support small independent businesses (across all sectors) rather than the large chain stores. This is being done to help develop the local economy and create new local job opportunities.

As well as promoting local businesses, we have also created, on behalf of some local restaurants, a home delivery service where they have a cost-effective food delivery service versus the expensive fees charged by some of the more well-established companies. This has provided a small extra income for the restaurants as well as create some new jobs for delivery drivers and support staff.
