High streets across Britain are experiencing a crisis in terms of survival and sustainability. One in seven high street shops are now empty, with businesses disappearing at an alarming rate.

Give your business all the online tools it needs to succeed

There are numerous business leaders such as Retail Guru Mary Portas who is passionately trying to save a very important aspect of UK life with her recommendations to the Cameron government.

OnlyUncle is also developing strategies that will help high street retailers improve poor sales performance and promote their business in a cost effective manner by utilising their unique daily deal site approach.

Their new initiative is a free trial offer which will drive customers back to the door steps of the retailers. The scheme is designed to give SMEs a voice, be in complete control of their promotional efforts with zero commission and get shoppers spending on great deals they can’t walk away from.

The economic downturn has led many people to put off purchases, with an increase in online sales as opposed to high street shopping.

OnlyUncle’s strategy around the trial offer is to use their online presence to actually generate traffic back to the high streets. They believe that there needs to be a balance between internet based sales and direct high street engagement.

With virtually nothing to lose and everything to gain, retailers will have an opportunity to reach out to their audience with the most up to date and easy to use facility available in the UK.

The initiative comes at a very opportune time as many retailers will be looking to add offers in the run up to the festive season and into the new year with boxing day promotions. It´s simply a great mix to every retailer´s sales efforts.

OnlyUncle Operations Director, Harjit Hira stated “It’s incredibly important that we as an SME recognize and share the burden of what’s happening on our high streets. This free trial offer is an excellent way for retailers to promote themselves and experience the benefits of what a ‘caring’ deal site should be. To see our high streets being devastated is not something I want my family or anyone else’s to witness. We will be working hand in hand with all those who want to put an end to this”.
