ShopAppyA new initiative being led by Breckland Council is supporting businesses across the district. ShopAppy is one part of the Market Town Initiative that will help all 5 market towns to gain footfall and customers. The scheme which has been featured on BBC The One Show and run successfully in Yorkshire for the past 18 months aims to raise the importance and profile of using local businesses, making it easier for residents and visitors to buy local, view to see this in action.

We will be launching the scheme over the next few months and our team will be meeting with businesses throughout this period.

A must attend event for small business owners in Breckland; how to maximise your business through ShopAppy 

Whether you are registered as a ShopAppy business or are still considering to do so this event will provide you with help increase footfall to our towns and the online support and training to get started. Founder Jackie Mulligan will give a quick guide to the site and show how to join the initiative. The ShopAppy team will be able to help businesses on the day to sign-up and take advantage of this new support. If you can bring along a device -PC, tablet or phone, Jackie will be able to provide more support to help everyone get the most out of the meeting.
