Kirkcaldy launches pilot project to help businesses after lockdown
Kirkcaldy businesses are the first in Scotland to trade online using the shopping platform ShopAppy. The site gives shoppers a way to shop local during lockdown and beyond to help support the local economy and to encourage people to buy from local independent businesses.
This is a pilot project, supported financially by Fife Council and ShopAppy Kirkcaldy, and is currently only open to Kirkcaldy businesses - who are being given the chance to participate free of charge in the scheme for six months. Afterwards, businesses can still participate in the scheme for the equivalent of just £5 a week. This initiative is currently being delivered by the newly formed Love Oor Lang Toun community group, and is supported by Greener Kirkcaldy and Fife Council.
