We created This Local Piggy because your stories of passion deserve to be seen and heard by the community
From May to the first week of July 2021, we ran a trial in the West Central Auckland suburbs of Grey Lynn, Mt Eden, Kingsland, Ponsonby and Freemans Bay to understand if customers would purchase from multiple local shops online.
Turns out they did, and nearly 40% returned to purchase more. So now, we are raising funding and building a more robust system to give sellers control and visibility of orders, customer requests and inventory management.
Connect to your local community
We are currently in the process of building and raising funds, but are accepting expressions of interest from:
- Specialist retail shops such as butchers, bakeries and fruit and vegetable shops
- Shops catering for special cuisines
With physical locations in Central Auckland suburbs
