ShopGuernsey website is launched in support of the island community
Submarine is continuing to operate during the current lock-down. In an effort to use our skills and experience to support the island community, we have created a tool to help retailers continue to operate effectively, and the general public to shop safely. This is in line with the current States of Guernsey recommendation issued on the 7th April 2020 which require the order of goods online (or by phone) and to have them delivered directly to local homes.
ShopGuernsey is a place where any business from a single trader through to a large established concern, can publish details of their current status, what they are selling, a point of contact, delivery details and even an FAQ section. There are options from a simple free listing with basic details, through to a full online shop with products lists and electronic payment.
If you are a small island trader who has not had the time or budget to go online previously, this is a great opportunity to do so, and the first steps are free of charge.
Shoppers can browse the various participating retailers in the directory and find out what the current status of a particular store is, for example, they may be operating under reduced opening times. Contacts are included towards placing an order and you can pay in several ways (dependent on the store) including by phone, bank transfer and ePayment. You can arrange a time to have your order delivered directly to you home with the supplier.
We have partnered with local provider AS Taxis so that you can be reassured that your orders will arrive in good condition, safely and securely.
If you know of any single trader or business that may find ShopGuernsey useful, please let them know of this project which operates within the States of Guernsey guidelines in support of the island community.
