A North Wales entrepreneur is inviting Llangollen businesses to get involved in his new online hub aimed at helping them trade through the Covid-19 lockdown.
Founder Aled Canter says that as Data House Wales prepares to launch in nearby Wrexham 20 businesses have so far signed up to the free service.
Aled says the website will help North Wales residents identify which retailers are still open - anything from food producers to shops and fast food outlets.
The company believes it will also help raise awareness of smaller businesses in the area, bringing them to the attention of the local community, as well as helping individuals who are shielding or in self-isolation get food and other necessities delivered to their homes.
Aled said: “We hope the hub can supply local goods to the people of North Wales and help people through the COVID-19 crisis.
"We are always looking for more businesses to join and get them listed on the website. It is currently free for anyone to use from a local consumer to business owner.
"I would like to have loads of businesses from Llangollen joining us, which could help everyone."
He added: "We would like to thank Business Wales and Nick Palmer for helping us get this off the ground.
"The future plan is to help out the local high streets in Wales by listing them on the website and thereby allowing people to see who is open in the local area and potentially use them by booking a service like a haircut or ordering and then picking up a coffee!"
