Market stalls log on to click and collect

SHOPPERS can now pre-order and reserve goods from Dewsbury Market online.

The new service brings stallholders in line with the growing number of shops that let people browse on the internet then collect items in person.

From catalogue shops to supermarkets, there are many places a busy shopper can reserve and collect in store, or from the click and collect depots popping up in supermarket car parks.

Fifteen businesses at Dewsbury Market have signed up, as well as one from Cleckheaton Market.

There is no obligation to buy and no payment is made when goods are reserved. Shoppers simply reserve the item and arrange a time to call in to pick it up.  A change of heart is no problem, but if a buyer decides to go through with the order it’s guaranteed that the reserved goods will be ready to collect.

Coun Peter McBride, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, said: “There are lots of people working in the town centre that would love to support our local markets and local stallholders but are worried about having time to browse at lunchtime.

“With this, you can pre-order what you want and then pop into the market and collect everything up in no time. It’s a great initiative for the market.”
