Tynemouth MP Alan Campbell is supporting Buy Local North Tyneside which began as a simple online list of businesses open during lockdown, and has since developed into website www.localnorthtyneside.co.uk, detailing which businesses are open and what goods and services they provide.
So far hundreds of organisations have been added to the website, where shoppers can search by business name, type or location, to find the provider of a product or service they need – encouraging people to ‘buy local’.
All that businesses need to do to appear on Buy Local North Tyneside is go to www.buylocalnorthtyneside.co.uk/register-business/ and enter their details.
Alan Campbell said “I welcome the Buy Local North Tyneside project which came together to encourage footfall to our town centres and high streets. We know that lockdown has had a real impact on our small local businesses and this is a great way for local people to get all the information they need in one place.”
