As part of its response to COVID-19 Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is seeking Expressions of Interest to establish a new online trading platform for the Borough.
In the current economic circumstances, an online trading platform could prove to be a lifeline for local small businesses.
Trading online via e-commerce enables sales to be achieved that otherwise could not happen particularly in the current circumstances. Many micro and small businesses have not yet embraced the opportunity of e-commerce for a number of reasons such as cost and fear of technology.
Council believes that a trading platform could enable many local businesses to get online while the platform will also encourage consumers to buy local.
Full details about the scheme are available in the Expressions of Interest document which can be downloaded below.
Expressions of Interest should be returned by 5pm on Friday 19th June.
