Good Sixty is something new and rather fabulous in Bristol. It’s a website designed to connect local food shops and small producers with customers all over the city. I’d heard about it on social media whilst we were away but didn’t know too much about it so not long after we got back from our travels, I met up with Chris Edwards (the mastermind behind Good Sixty) to find out more. I’m a nosy bugger…
The website itself is really easy to navigate and beautifully laid out. You can choose to browse by shop category, by map and even by retailers who deliver. Take time to read the little snippets about each shop and find out why they are ‘high street heroes’. I love the eclectic mix of family run, old and new, and all independent businesses.
For busy Bristolians who don’t have time to trawl their favourite independent shops but don’t want to just head to the big supermarket, Good Sixty offers a great alternative. Simply do all your shopping online (from multiple shops) and either collect at your convenience OR arrange delivery. Genius.
Chris’s passion for this city and for independents was infectious. After less than a year, he already has over 40 retailers on board. And I’m sure there are more to come. Personally, I love this idea and will definitely be using Good Sixty again!
