Norfolk County’s Economic Development Department is looking for retailers who are interested in selling their products online.
As a part of Norfolk County’s Economic Recovery Plan, the team has launched Shop Norfolk – a digital marketplace – for Norfolk County businesses.
“With the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the growth of large online retail platforms becoming firmly established as a major competitive force in the retail industry,” said Zvi Lifshiz, Director of Strategic Innovation and Economic Development, “we recognized how important e-commerce readiness is for our small business community.”
Through a platform called shopmytown, Norfolk’s small business retailers will have the opportunity to sell their products online – with minimal effort and no cost, including delivery. This builds on other great “shop local” initiatives in the community.
Those businesses that currently sell products online are still encouraged to participate.
The website will be available for public use once the onboarding phase of the project is complete.
Local retailers who wish to register their interest for participating on the platform can do so at norfolkcounty.ca/shop-norfolk
