Hear from Stu and Kelly, a couple of our Happy Vendors:
Your local customers are more online savvy than ever.
Bricks and mortar businesses who rely solely on foot traffic from locals and tourists leave themselves vulnerable to external factors as we have seen with the COVID19 pandemic.
We are increasingly seeing the shift to online shopping as it is one of the most convenient ways to get what you need. Customers have an expectation that they should be able to buy online from you. But, if your business hasn’t done the work to make it easy for them to buy online, they will go elsewhere.
There’s no escaping the impact of these changes on local businesses.
