A NEW 'shop local' app will bring the best of Bolton's businesses, leisure and events directly to your phone.

Bolton Council has commissioned mobile app developer dscvr, who are already operating in towns and cities across the UK.

Businesses across the borough, including Horwich, Westhoughton and Blackrod, have been invited to feature on the app for free and will have their own space to promote themselves and any special offers.

The app is part of the council's 'Welcome Back' plans and the app has been funded with the help of the European Regional Development Fund.

Residents and visitors alike will be able to download it for free to discover the best the borough has to offer.

Council leader Martyn Cox said: "In the aftermath of the pandemic, this app will promote local businesses to give a much-needed boost to the town centre economy.

"Business can advertise their products and services free of charge and residents and visitors to our town will have an easy way of finding out everything that's on offer.

"Many of us rely on mobile phones in our day to day lives so to be able to access all this local information at the touch of a button will be fantastic."
