Thank you for subscribingWe have more newsletters Show me See our privacy notice Invalid Email A new app helping Welsh traders reach consumers in the fight back against the coronavirus has been launched. By creating a digital shop window, iTown enables consumers using the app to see what products are on offer locally in businesses such as corner shops, butchers, fruit and veg outlets, bakers, and food takeaways. Free to download iTown collates up to the second information from local firms. Users can then order and arrange delivery through a simple online messaging service and pay online. Whilst there will be a roll-out across Wales over the next couple of weeks, the first place to adopt iTown will be Treorchy in the South Wales Valleys, which was recently voted the best high street in the UK. Read More The idea came from conversations between Professor Dylan Jones-Evans of the University of South Wales (creator of the Wales Start-up Awards) and Kate Methuen-Ley (founder of Tiger Stores Cardiff) who were looking for ways to support their local businesses. However, it proved very difficult when searching online to find out which  independents were open, who was delivering and who had stock available. Kate Kate Methuen-Ley Ms Methuen-Ley said: "I was trawling through Facebook and Twitter and sharing any information of local businesses who were delivering, doing take-out or had items in stock. However, I couldn’t really find one website where my friends and family could only find out what was available from local businesses. "As a small business owner myself, I also realised that shops would find it difficult to get their message out to customers during the current lockdown”. They have been working alongside Vicky Mann, a Pontypridd based entrepreneur who had already developed a potential solution to the problem via the NearMeNow app that promotes the physical presence of the bricks and mortar businesses by amplifying their shop window advertising. Victoria Mann Mr Mann: “When we discussed how to help local firms, I immediately realised that there was something tangible we could do to support businesses, towns and high streets during these uncertain times. "NearMeNow has always championed the independent businesses since its inception and I was more than happy to help create a free open basic version to help those communities and businesses who need to advertise, communicate and transact remotely through a simple easy to use platform” With help from businesses from across the Welsh entrepreneurial network including digital Blue Stag, Big Lemon and Web Marketer, iTown was born. Founder of Blue Stag Dan Sargent said: “It’s been great to be involved in iTown and I’m proud of what this small group of people have accomplished in such a short space of time. Hopefully iTown can really help support the local businesses that we all rely on so much when then need it most. Pro Jones-Evan said:“At this difficult time for Welsh business, it’s wonderful to see entrepreneurs come together to do something collectively for the community we work in every day. "By creating an app that will collate information from all the businesses in each local area in one place, residents will now be able to go online to link directly to those shops and outlets remaining open in their high street and therefore help their local businesses at this critical time.” Adrian Emmett, owner of The Lion pub in Treorchy said: “Due to Covid-19, our high street offerings are changing by the hour but unfortunately, social media and directories aren’t keeping up with these changes. "Treorchy needed a way of viewing shop window adverts from a distance and a quick easy way of setting up and taking payments for newly formed delivery services and we are delighted to be adopting iTown for the benefit of local businesses."
