A new local online business hub is set to launch in Wrexham, and 20 businesses have already signed up, including award winning employer Moneypenny.

The hub is the brainchild of Data House Wales, who wanted to support local businesses in Wrexham and help them to trade through the Covid-19 lockdown period.

The website will help North Wales residents identify which retailers are still open, and contact businesses directly to arrange delivery or collection – whether that is a food delivery to their door – anything from food producers to shops or fast-food retailers, for example.

The company believe it will also help raise awareness of smaller businesses in the area, bringing them to the attention of the local community, as well as helping individuals who are shielding or in self-isolation get food and other necessities delivered to their homes.

Aled Canter, the founder of Data House Wales, says:

“We hope the hub can supply local goods to the local people of North Wales and help people through the Covid-19 crisis. We are always looking for more businesses to join and get them listed on the website. It is currently free for anyone to use from a local consumer to business owner.

“We would also like to thank Business Wales and Nick Palmer for helping us get this off the ground. The future plan is to help out the local high streets in Wales by listing them on the website and thereby allowing people to see who is open in the local area and potentially use them by booking a service like a haircut or ordering and then picking up a coffee!
