Free Local Delivery Service

From the 22 December 2020, we have been running a free local delivery service to support all town centre-based businesses. Proving a success with both shoppers and firms, the initiative was put in place to assist businesses in offering flexible trading through unprecedented times, support the local economy, and reduce non-essential travel in and around the area.

To date more than 2000 parcels have been delivered for free in Falkirk, and the surrounding districts, equating to approximately 15,000 miles worth of non-essential journeys saved by the BID team for local consumers.

The service is currently available to all town centre businesses and can be used by customers living within the following postcodes: FK1, FK2, FK3, FK4, FK5, FK6 and EH51.

Local retailers currently using the service include: Catwalk, Geeks & Gamers, Glebe, Jolly Tots, Kicks for Kids, Piccolina, Scarlet Ribbons, Centre Stage Dancewear, Sisters and Misters, Party Rocks, Blue Lass Tattoo, Clever Clogs, Tom, Dick &Harry/Runway Boutique, Derek Harley Photography, Babes Boutique, Abuzz Mobility, Sheila’s Sweets, Seagull Trust Cruises Bookshop and Heaven N Hell Tattoos & Piercings.

If you are interested in using this service, please contact the team on 01324 611293 to find out more! Additionally, we are now looking to expand this initiative to include District Town businesses.

Falkirk Delivers’ free local delivery service has been a tremendous help to us during lockdown. The feedback we have received from our customers has been so encouraging and provided us with great reviews for both our business and the Falkirk Delivers team.

Many of the products we sell are small items, and with postage being so expensive, it makes it difficult for customers to justify buying. When delivery is free customers are happy to make the purchase, and I believe the service has encouraged customers to shop local and subsequently help small businesses like ours.

We’ve been promoting our merchandise and vouchers and having the delivery service by Falkirk Delivers has been a great help. Knowing that our customers are receiving a safe, speedy, service has been really useful during this time.
