A SUPERMARKET-style ‘click and collect’ scheme will be trialled in Accrington’s Market Hall.
Busy shoppers who want to shop locally will be able to browse traders’ goods online, pay for them, and then pick them up from one, single market stall.
The scheme means office workers could buy meat from the butcher, potatoes from the fruit and vegetables stall, and eggs from the dairy stall, pay online, and then pick up their goods together on their way home.
It has been hailed as unique by deputy council leader Clare Pritchard. She said: “This is something that has never been done before. It’s very experimental and I’m very hopeful it will work.
“It will offer people who want to shop in the market an alternative.”
