Ipswich Building Society announced as headline sponsor of new online directory Shop Suffolk
Ipswich Building Society has today announced it is supporting Shop Suffolk, a new online platform encouraging consumers to find and support local businesses in the county.
Launched earlier this year by digital marketer Nina Christensen, Shop Suffolk is a directory of independent, homegrown retailers with categories spanning everything from produce to homewares and fitness classes. The site can be found at www.shopsuffolk.co.uk.
Nina explains “I crafted Shop Suffolk following a conversation with my parents at the outset of the pandemic, where they and their friends were trying to find which retailers remained open and where they could source home deliveries. Now, perhaps more than ever, people want to know what services are available on their doorstep.
“I am delighted to welcome Ipswich Building Society as headline sponsor for Shop Suffolk and to be working together championing independent retailers, supporting local businesses and benefiting the Suffolk economy.”
Kesha Allen, Membership and Local Marketing Manager at Ipswich Building Society added “As a Suffolk-based mutual we know the importance of supporting independent traders not only on our high streets and thoroughfares, but also in the hidden studios and workrooms across the county. Shop Suffolk brings together these retailers in one, easy to use place and demonstrates what fantastic services are on offer.”
Alongside retailer listings Shop Suffolk displays user ratings and reviews, to help highlight great service and recommendations.
Retailers are urged to create their own listing on the site, with contact details, images, location map and social media links displayed at no cost. Upgraded packages, offering additional information plus announcements, deals and offers, are available from £10 per listing.
