Small market businesses are now offering customers the opportunity to select goods online, reserve them and collect them in person on the day.

Over a quarter of the 85 businesses in Queensgate Market have signed up to a Click and Collect scheme, whilst 17 are already up and running having already listed their goods ready to reserve.

Cllr 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.”

There is no obligation to buy and no payment is made when goods are reserved.

Shoppers are able to 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.

A number of the stallholders at the Queensgate Market are offering discounts for customers using the Click and Collect service.

Lincolns Florist currently has twelve flower arrangements to reserve online, and all are discounted when reserving in advance.
