Andover BID is supporting its town centre business with a brand-new delivery service for customers from Monday 15th June to coincide with many non-essential shops beginning to open again.
The BID is launching a delivery service for its independent shops (Indies) which will be carried out by local company PHAT Services and offers safe and secure daily deliveries to the SP9, SP10 & SP11 areas of Andover and surrounding villages on behalf of businesses. The service is aimed at supporting independent businesses and enabling them to compete with some of the national names that people buy from on-line.
Adam Phillips, owner of PHAT Services says that he is delighted to be working with the BID and Andover town centre Indies to offer this service. I understand the need to be totally versatile and adaptable in these difficult times and appreciate that some people will be cautious about coming into town after such a long period of lockdown. My drivers are fully trained in social distancing and operate and maintain full COVID-19 health & safety regulations.
Manager of Andover BID, Steve Godwin remains convinced that the versatility of Andover Indies will enable them to survive and flourish in these difficult times. We have been regularly in touch with all the businesses over the lockdown period and have been inspired at how many have fought back by changing or adapting their business models. We are fortunate to have so many Indies in the town and they have told us that a way BID can support them is with the introduction of a delivery service.
