New app helps convenience stores compete with supermarket giants

Posted on

Snappy Shopper has recently been introduced to the market as a new app that enables local independent shops to increase their sales through offering delivery.

Convenience stores can add their full range of products to the app, therefore adding the ability to be seen by thousands more customers who may have never even set foot in the store. When using the app consumers can quickly add products to cart, check-out and get it delivered in under an hour. This is anything from Alcohol, Soft Drinks, Snacks, Groceries, Baby Care, Household, Cigarettes & Tobacco, Magazines & Newspapers, Pet food and more.

This new innovative software claims that it ultimately helps independent shop owners compete with the much larger retailers like Asda and Tesco, who do not offer delivery in under an hour.

The startup has seen impressive figures from their pilot stores and have recently received £1m+ funding to begin rolling out the service UK-wide.

Store owners have seen an increase in sales without a drop in in-store sales, with the stores picking up customers that wouldn't normally use their store. Those with disabilities, single-mums and busy professionals are just a few of the groups of people who are regularly using the app. Snappy Shopper boasts an impressive £21 average basket size, customers are stocking up more than in-store for a variety of reasons.

Targeting smaller, independent retailers, the Snappy Shopper, backed by Tech giants MTC media pride themselves on giving control to the retailers and helping them increase their sales through their digital capabilities.
