Farm Shop launches online shopping
4th December 2015
Apley Estate owner Lord Hamilton explained “This is something which has been in the pipeline since we began, so it’s great to see it come to fruition. We’ve taken our first orders & we’re adding products to our site every week. In September, DeliShop was launched by ClicBox, who manage the ‘back-office’ for us.”
“We’ve effectively gone national: From our base in Shropshire, we can now supply customers all over the UK with products handmade at Apley Farm Shop as well as a wide range from many other suppliers.“ added Lady Hamilton.
Lady Hamilton, marketing manager added “We have over one hundred of our bestselling products already available online. Our own range of Apley products includes bakery items and ales, home reared fresh meats and sausages from Apley butchers, as well as quiches, scotch eggs & cheeses from the Apley Delicatessen. We have 2 sizes of veg boxes, sourcing from Apley Walled Garden whenever possible and our range of hampers and gift vouchers are perfect for giving as presents.”
All Apley items ordered online are available for Click & Collect, however we also offer an array of other fine foods and drinks direct-from-suppliers, which can be delivered to addresses in the UK, or collected from Apley Farm Shop.
“Our online shop is accessible anytime and has plenty of choice. It makes buying gifts, preparing for parties or just doing the weekly shop quick and easy for our customers” added Lady Hamilton, Marketing Manager.
Charlie Turnbull continued “We’re really pleased to have Apley Farm Shop on board as one of our founding partners. Apley have astonishingly good meats and more, plus they have a great reputation for supporting the local economy. Their range of non-Apley products is also mouth-watering, as they bring specialty foods from all over the UK to consumers’ doorsteps.”
DeliShops are new online shops which give delicatessens and farm shops an easy way to sell online. However Charlie Turnbull says they are much more than your average online shop: "Our most innovative elements are our click and collect service options plus our incorporation of the best producers and importers onto the sites. Apley's customers can now shop through Apley's DeliShop for a range of goods not seen outside big cities - from unusual teas to gift hampers to whole Spanish hams - and their customers can collect from the shop, send to their own home or send gifts around the UK. It is a better quality and a bigger range than ever before, combined with the service options of the major retailers - the ground breaking Apley Farm Shop experience you've come to know in store, now available on line.”
The site is fully compliant with all distance-selling & online trading regulations.
