As a representatives of a business industry organisation, I know you understand the challenges small retail businesses in local communities face.

I’d like to introduce Shop Local, an online marketplace being created to address these challenges. is currently seeking expressions of interest from sellers in your community who would like to find out more about selling via the marketplace, by signing up on the website.

To further help your local retailers (with or without a shop front), could you please spread the word about this opportunity via social media, newsletter, email or by any other means you wish.

I have included some information about how Shop Local will help your local sellers thrive, along with some information you can share with your local sellers about the benefits of selling on Shop Local. In addition, here is a general advertisement for Shop Local should you wish to publish it.

If you are interested in participating in any media opportunities or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reply to this email or contact me directly.

Kind Regards

Kate Bishop
Founder, Shop Local
