What is ShopAppy?
ShopApply was founded in 2016, when the founder, Dr Jackie Mulligan, saw that local businesses in her hometown were struggling to reach out to local customers or to compete against bigger, out of town retail centres and online outlets.
ShopAppy was started to provide a unified shop window for every town, featuring local, independent brands and providing an opportunity for local people to shop with them directly in a more convenient way.
The brand brings together the convenience of bigger, online shopping platforms, while combining it with the advantages of local businesses, offering customers the chance to click and collect at a wide range of convenient times, as well as shopping in store.
