WITH non-essential businesses closed during the latest national lockdown, Ashton Town Team has been highlighting those small businesses that have adapted to offer a ‘Click&Collect’ service.
Val Unwin, from Ashton Town Team & Ashton Independent Retail Facebook, explained about the project.
“Although our small non-essential businesses are closed in the lockdown, they can still supply you with the same quality goods and customer service that you expect but just in a different way,” she said.
“What I’m asking you to do is take a look at ashtonsmallbiz.co.uk where there is a list of our businesses that highlight those providing their services for local delivery, click and collect or by post plus those small essential businesses still open.
“Check social media for local businesses information in particular Ashton Town Team and Ashton Independent Retail where many businesses post regularly with links to their own sites.
“They really need your support and if you want to keep these small shops then please buy it local if you can.”
