Boost for convenience tech


IF you aren’t familiar with Snappy Shopper already, then you might be hearing about them soon. The Dundee-based firm, which helps convenience stores to grow their online sales, has raised a seven-figure sum to fund its expansion.

Snappy Shopper can deliver in under 60 minutes, offering promotions directly to customers’ phones while providing insights into their buying behaviour.

John McNicol, director at investor Kelvin Capital, said: “Online shopping and food ordering is undoubtedly on the rise and the team at Snappy Shopper have identified a huge gap in the market by offering consumers the convenience of local grocery shopping, directly to their door, much quicker than a large supermarket can.”
