Utilising some of the “Welcome Back Fund” allocation we received, NWLDC are pioneering two exciting digital projects to help our high streets recover from the longer term effects of Covid-19, encourage people to continue shopping locally and support our high street retailers to become more visible in the digital, online world.

What are the digital projects?

We have launched a Digital High Street with ShopAppy.com for Coalville and Ashby-de-la-Zouch. Participating businesses will be listed online – just like the high street, but now on a web page too! Website visitors will be able to click into each business, see what they sell, their opening hours etc, and even purchase items for click & collect!

With 63% of all shopping purchases starting online and Click and Collect purchases forecast to be worth £23bn by 2025, it’s clear this is an area destined only to grow further.

Alongside this we are running a district wide Loyalty Scheme called Hex. Using a smartphone app or a physical ‘credit card’, this works like a supermarket loyalty card, except in your local high street shops! Every purchase you make earns you points with the shop you've just bought from, which (after you've saved up those points!) you can then redeem for rewards at the shop you earned them in. 

With businesses reporting that loyalty schemes encourage customers to spend more and also recommend the businesses to friends and family, it’s another simple add-on to any business that will help retain customers and increase revenue.

How much does it cost?

NWLDC are using part of our allocation of the Welcome Back Fund (provided by HM Government and the European Regional Development Fund) to trial the two projects free of charge to local businesses for 12 months.

After this businesses will be able to pull out with no strings attached or can take on the payment for both schemes. This can vary but is not likely to exceed £30 per month.
