Just Footprints expands into Frodsham & deploys Zero-emissions Electric Delivery Car!
Like many small businesses, Chester's First Single-use-plastic-free Refill shop, Just Footprints - https://justfootprintsltd.co.uk/ has battled the effects of the pandemic and subsequent reduction in customers due to the Northgate Development works. Cheshire West and Chester Council helped us to get started, with a great deal on our first space in the Forum Shopping Centre.
We added the option of "Click-and-Collect" at the start of the pandemic, but we always had plans to expand the business into other areas and to find a way of providing home deliveries, in a sustainable way.
The great news is that we have now opened a SECOND SHOP in FRODSHAM, giving the residents of the town and surrounding areas the same quality, sustainable, affordable shopping experience. And the shop is proving to be a big hit, with an increase in customers weekly, since it opened on October 30th this year.
To support the needs of many of our customers, who are either concerned about Covid-19 or the difficulties with getting into Chester, or just getting out during the winter months, we have also added a Single-Use-Plastic-Free HOME DELIVERY SERVICE, via our fantastic Electric Delivery vehicle, in the form a Fully-Sign-Written Nissan Leaf car.
The intention is that this will also be complemented by deliveries in the centre of Chester via an electric bicycle, at least in the run-up to Christmas.
We are so pleased that, for 3 years already, we have been able to support our community in the wonderful city of Chester and that we are now supporting the lovely community of Frodsham and the areas beyond. When we are able to once again, we will re-start our community workshops in the Chester store and become more involved than we already are with community events in Frodsham.
We look forward to many more years supporting both communities and hope that customers will help us grow to provide even more than our existing 1,200 Food & Non-food products.
