Isle20 – A Christmas Success Story

 
 
 
 
New inter-island commerse site Isle20 has provided an online platform for businesses throughout the islands to continue selling their produce during Covid , and is now boosting their Christmas sales to make up for income lost during summer’s lockdowns.
 
Dynamic island entrepreneur, Rhoda Meek, based on Tiree, reports:
 
It’s been so exciting to watch isle20.com go from strength to strength over the last few months  – we have now got more than 500 island businesses listed, and 140 of them are selling in the isle20 shop!
 
We have over 2500 products to buy directly and after being featured in the Calmac newsletter we had our highest grossing sales day last month. The site stayed up despite hundreds of visitors a minute – which was the biggest worry!
 
So far we reckon we have generated over £40,000 for small island businesses and we’re not done yet – watch put for exclusive gift boxes, a giveaway in partnership with CalMac and we have gift cards available for those last minute Christmas panics!
