‘Spend your money where your heart is’

Penarth Business Group has officially launched ShopAppy Penarth – a new virtual marketplace for the town’s independent shops and businesses, which gives shoppers the opportunity to buy from their favourite local traders online in one place.

The site launches with 53 independent shops, cafés/restaurants and businesses signed up to ShopAppy Penarth, with more set to join in the coming weeks. Shoppers can now buy a range of items from cosmetics to crafts with options for delivery available too.

Penarth is the first town in Wales to trial the new shopping scheme.

The scheme follows on from other successful trader initiatives like ‘Fiver Fest’ and the Christmas ‘Tenner trail’ which encouraged residents to support their local traders during the coronavirus pandemic. We know that  spending locally with shops you love can lead to more jobs, a better high street, a stronger local economy for all.

Chair of the Penarth Business Group, Angelina Hall, said:

“Locals will now be able to order easily, and completely guilt free. They know that they will be helping their local economy and strengthening our town. We will all see the benefits in attracting more independents, including an increase jobs and a more vibrant place to live.”
