ShopNearBuy announces the launch of an exciting new online marketplace where consumers can find and buy a wide range of products from local retailers. ShopNearBuy.ie is a digital store where consumers can discover a wide selection of everyday products such as food, fashion, home and gifts sold by retailers in your local vicinity. You can search for companies closest to your location. This is an online marketplace that promotes shopping local and supporting local jobs. ShopNearBuy is free to use and customers are not  required to register. This allows you to conveniently enjoy a range of attractive local deals, with exciting deals exclusively available on the platform.  

ShopNearBuy should also be of particular interest to local SME retailers because it provides eCommerce capability, enabling local businesses to generate online sales without worrying about any of the technical costs involved. If you already have an e-commerce store, it integrates easily. If you have no online sales store, you can have a new shop landing page today with no setup costs.

Phase One of a national roll-out is being launched here in Laois. ShopNearBuy is now inviting retailers to utilize this opportunity to freely advertise their products on the website, and consumers are welcome to browse these de als and support local retailers. 

“…. it’s like a local shopping centre in the cloud with the difference being that consumers can buy items from their favourite local Irish stores all on 1 order with 1 payment” says Alastair Roe, Commercial Director at ShopNearBuy.#

Some Participating Retailers

There are plenty of local retailers involved with more joining over the coming weeks. Some local companies that already have a shop page on the platform include The Merry Mill, ReFillz, Grape & Bean, O’ Mimo’s, Miller’s, Gifts Galore, Bowfield Farm and Butterfly Chocolatier.

You can find a wide range of Wholefoods and Eco-Friendly Products sourced locally supporting Irish business.

These delicious, bold and  flavourful sauces are ideal for those who love food adventure and flavourful explosions.

Grape & Bean (pictured) – With stores in Portlaoise and Abbeyleix,Grape & Bean are all about real wine, real artisan food and hand roasted coffee.  Fantastic hampers with real wine from growers, not factories.
