Shopping: Is this the online shopping Holy Grail?

Coupling the speed and ease of Amazon with the chance to shop both small and local, it’s the online shopping Holy Grail. Since Click It Local widened its delivery area to take in Ely postcodes at the end of June - having launched in Cambridge city early in lockdown - I’ve been able to buy from many of my favourite indies, from Jack’s Gelato and boutique chocolatier Bumble & Oak to Eleven Fifteen Jewellery and house plant specialist Small & Green, while continuing to shield. In tough retailing times, Click It Local is throwing indies a lifeline. Hats off to founder Steven Koch, who lives in Ely and is rolling out the scheme across the country, with Brighton and East London already up and running.

Order one day for delivery the next and everything you’ve ordered comes together. It’s absolutely BRILLIANT.

Visit clickitlocal.co.uk and pop your postcode into the checker to see if your area is covered.
