Healthy Foods Online is one of 100 launch retailers featured on SHOPS by mySupermarket
SHOPS by mySupermarket launches to bridge the gap between quality and convenience for UK consumers
Monday June 16th, 2015: Liverpool based retailer Healthy Foods Online is today pleased to announce its listing on SHOPS – a new one-stop shop marketplace for all independent grocery needs.
Launched by the creators of mySupermarket – the leading shopping and comparison grocery website – SHOPS combines the quality of your favourite independent retailers with the convenience of online shopping. From butchers to bakeries, health to household goods, shoppers can purchase various products from over 100 independent retailers across the UK, including Healthy Foods Online.
You can now choose from a selection of Healthy Foods Online's free from and gourmet ranges with a simple click of a button, including, Alpro, Nakd and Monin Syrups which can be delivered straight to your door. SHOPS is the ultimate way to stock up on premium, quality produce whilst showing your support for the great British High Street.
To mark the launch, new research carried out by SHOPS reveals that despite three quarters of shoppers (44%) buying from independent retailers weekly, almost a third (30%) are deterred from shopping at local, independent boutiques due to a lack of online availability.
The recent poll* of over 2,000 UK shoppers highlights the nation’s growing appetite for online shopping coupled with a demand for convenience, with nearly two thirds (64%) claiming they shop online as they like buying everything in one place.
Gilad Simhony, CEO, mySupermarket comments: “Shoppers are constantly seeking new, convenient options when it comes to buying their groceries, so SHOPS by mySupermarket is the perfect way of bringing the best of the British High Street, straight to consumers’ doorsteps. SHOPS has paved the way for a unique type of online shopping experience, making it easier than ever to access the quality and care of independent retailers, whilst providing much needed support for the great British High Street”.
Michael Craven, Sales and Marketing Manager at Healthy Foods Online said "SHOPS offers a fantastic platform for Healthy Foods Online to demonstrate our wide product range. As well as this, we can compete against other food companies on price and ensure that we are being as competitive as possible. We took the decision to work with SHOPS as the enjoyable shopping experience it provides runs parallel to what we try to achieve on our website."
