Grow your business with new e-commerce app

13 June 2022

Mobile Phone with the Discover WN App on it

Businesses across West Northamptonshire are encouraged to sign-up for a new e-commerce and tourism app to boost footfall, increase local spend, and shine a spotlight on everything our area has to offer.

West Northamptonshire Council has worked with award-winning technology company Bubltown to create the new ExploreWN app.

The app is set to be launched later this summer, but businesses are invited to sign-up to it for free now, so they can set up their profile on the app and be ready to engage with customers from day one.

Funded by the Welcome Back Fund with the aim of helping businesses recover from the pandemic and return to growth, the platform offers a digital showcase for local businesses and attractions

It is free for any West Northamptonshire business to join and use, and allows them to create a profile, raise their reputation, boost their brand and increase sales.

The app will give residents easy access to local goods, services and discounts right on their doorstep and will include features to promote events, walking routes and local attractions.

Councillor Daniel Lister, Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Town Centre Regeneration said: “This is a powerful platform which will provide businesses with the support they need to thrive in a more digital future as well as enhance the local quality of life, grow the local economy and support our vision of a thriving West Northamptonshire.

“We are dedicated to supporting businesses to grow, create jobs and prosper in this area. West Northants has the perfect combination of rural and urban offers and ExploreWN is going to showcase every hidden gem and reason to visit, shop and spend in our area.”

Businesses can find out more and sign up at ExploreWN.
