It’s no secret that the great British high street has taken a battering over recent years- the convenience and choice of online shopping has left countless independent retailers struggling to survive. But that doesn’t have to mean the end for smaller shops- enter downyourhighstreet.com, the UK’s leading online marketplace for independent shop owners.
Established in 2013, our primary focus has always been driving shoppers back to the high street by making independent shops and their products available online as well as off. After two and a half years of interaction with over 350 retailers we’ve developed a platform that won’t just keep independent retailers afloat, but also help them flourish and grow.
Boutiques can get online and start making profits quickly and with minimal work- even retailers with limited or no online experience will be able to upload and sell easily, and we take care of all the technical stuff. The platform is fully mobile responsive and packed with easy to use apps and features. Because it’s specifically for independent retailers there’s no danger of being undercut by larger companies, and unlike other online shopping platforms there are absolutely no listing fees.

- Your shop’s own, personalised profile page
