Indie click-and-collect website StreetHub extends to Brighton

StreetHub, a website and app offering a click-and-collect service for independent London retailers, is preparing to expand to Brighton.

The business, which was set up last October and has already signed 330 shops in the capital – about half of which are fashion stores – enables shoppers to buy products sold by indies and collect them in store or use a same-day delivery service.

It will launch in Brighton towards the end of September, with 15 retailers on board for the initial roll-out, including womenswear retailer Collectif and lifestyle retailer Present in the Laine.

StreetHub business development manager Luciana Bhangu told Drapers: “Brighton is great for independent shops and has a great community so it felt like a good idea to go there next.”

If successful, StreetHub could look to expand into other towns and cities, but would not give any specific places or timeframes.

The website has attracted about 50,000 unique visitors since its launch.

Managing director of Collectif, John Alston, said StreetHub appealed because it “helps to drive people to the store”.

“It gives people a flavour online for the shops and encourages them to visit. It will take time to build up, but I have confidence that it will be a success.”
