Introducing #WeAreNailsea – Nailsea’s Virtual High Street
#WeAreNailsea is an online platform for local businesses funded by Nailsea Town Council. The website is essentially a virtual high street, allowing users to purchase products from all participating local businesses in one online place.
Due to Covid-19 and the reliance of many on e-commerce platforms, independent businesses have struggled. #WeAreNailsea encourages people to shop local, as well as helping businesses go online.
Lots of Nailsea businesses have already signed up, offering collection, delivery, and in-house products and services. There will be more are to come!
#WeAreNailsea is not limited to shops physically on the high street and can include any service or product provider within Nailsea, such as garages, health and beauty salons, hairdressers, independent shops, tradespeople and more!
If you would like your Nailsea business to be on #WeAreNailsea, fill in this form.
The new #WeAreNailsea website is part of the #WeAreLocals initiative, which helps towns and high streets create online identities and reach communities.
#WeAreLocals works in partnership with BIDs (Business Improvement District), Councils and Town Centres to keep people shopping local. It started as a lockdown project to aid independent businesses in continuing to sell products, however now the long-term goal is to continue supporting local businesses and helping them transition to online environments.
