Retailers are uniting to revive the high street by promoting safer shopping this Christmas.
Ted Baker, Phase Eight, Mint Velvet, Jigsaw, Reiss, Hobbs and Paperchase are among 17 brands already participating in the #SaveShops campaign led by unified commerce specialist OneStock. It aims to increase awareness of in-store services that support a safer shopping experience for you while helping to safeguard millions of retail jobs throughout the Christmas period.
The hashtag #SaveShops points to a new online hub, saveshops.co.uk, where you can find a list of UK brands offering options such as click and collect, reserve and collect, assisted remote shopping with a store staff employee as well as home delivery. Retailers that provide any of these services are invited to sign up.
The saveshops.co.uk website acts as a central hub for high street retailers of all sizes and sectors that have adapted their operations during the pandemic, enabling local businesses to connect with customers and continue to trade, while protecting the livelihoods of their staff.
The UK retail industry employs approximately three million people, making it one of the largest employment sectors in the country.
