A UNIQUE new online department store is bringing together retailers across the borough to sell their wares simply and effectively to more customers than ever before.
The new e-commerce service will enable hundreds of companies on thebestof Oldham network to display and sell their goods and services online.
Hundreds of thousands of consumers will have access to browse and buy at work, at home or on the go through a single, convenient and trusted location.
And David Lawrence Jewellers, who is one of the first to sign up to sell his wares through the online store, is excited about the boost it will bring to his business.
David said: “Taking my stock online makes sound business sense. I can now showcase goods, attract new visitors, sell online and ask followers on Twitter and Facebook to become customers.
“Doing this as part of the community rather than through the likes of the big boys is great. Together we can build an outstanding online store all about Oldham and its unique offer.”
Richard Taylor, thebestof Oldham founder, works with a variety of companies across the borough who will soon also be adding their stock to the online store.
He commented: “I am thrilled to offer a community-based option for shops and businesses who want to build an online presence while keeping their bricks and mortar.
“This will put their wares directly in front of thousands who visit our website every month and make their business accessible anytime, anywhere.”
And Michelle Downey, the Head of thebestof, added: “Our vision is to have hundreds of online department stores across thebestof network, creating a national marketplace for retailers, businesses and shoppers.
“With millions of visitors every month we will offer a new way for consumers to browse and buy online and encourage new visitors to visit business districts in person.”
thebestof Oldham provides a unique local marketing service to promote the best local businesses in and around the borough while providing a unique gathering point for the local community.
