Black’s Menswear signed up to Ourlocal.uk and launched a click and collect service after the first Covid-19 lockdown resulted in it having no income for three months.
Anton Sedgwick, director of the renowned shop that sells high-end brands such as Mac Jeans, Tommy Hilfiger and Bugatti, said he turned to Ourlocal.uk when his shop was allowed to reopen after the first lockdown was lifted.
Ourlocal.uk is an innovative company launched to design and deliver e-commerce websites for small businesses which aims to save our High Streets one shop at a time.
Anton found out about Ourlocal.uk through a friend of Russ James, one of the three businessmen behind the initiative. He was keen to add e-commerce to the shop’s existing website, to sell stock and save the jobs of the 11 staff who work across the two stores in Stafford and Newcastle-under-Lyme.
