BigBarn launches smartphone and tablet app
Local food and drink website www.bigbarn.co.ukhas just launched a free tablet and smartphone app, which will allow consumers to access the site’s services on the go.
The new BigBarn App allows users to search for local food and drink businesses in their area, buy online and connect with small producers. It also includes information on seasonality, recipe ideas and deals and discounts offered by different retailers.
“We’ve developed the app to help support small businesses looking to compete with the supermarkets,” said BigBarn founder Anthony Davison. “Increasingly consumers are using apps to search for businesses or purchase products online and we wanted to provide small retailers with the chance to get involved in this growing side of retail.”
As well as thousands of products that can be bought online, the app also provides details and locations of producers and retailers that are local to users.
“We hope it will give people more choice on where to shop and help them increase the amount they spend locally, thereby boosting rural economies,” added Davison.
The BigBarn App is now available to download free from the App Store.
