Data House Wales is set to launch a website for local businesses in Wrexham to help them trade through the Covid-19 lockdown period. There are already 20 businesses signed up, including big names such as Moneypenny.
The online hubs looks to help people from the region of North Wales see which retailers are active and can be contacted to provide a service, be that providing a food delivery to their door – anything from food producers to shops or fast-food retailers, for example. It is also a chance for the community to use local outlets and not the big branded names. This is a fantastic opportunity to help people who are isolating and need to get food and other necessities to their homes.
Aled Canter, the founder of Data House Wales, says: “We hope the hub can supply local goods to the local people of North Wales and help people through the Covid-19 crisis. We are always looking for more businesses to join and get them listed on the website. It is currently free for anyone to use from a local consumer to business owner.
We would also like to thank Business Wales and Nick Palmer for helping us get this off the ground. The future plan is to help out the local high streets in Wales by listing them on the website and thereby allowing people to see who is open in the local area and potentially use them by booking a service like a haircut or ordering and then picking up a coffee!
For anyone interested in getting their local business advertised or even to be listed in the region where they trade, email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.”
