We may think "supporting your local businesses" means visiting your local high street. However, not all local businesses have a shopfront! Well, a physical one anyway. There are some fabulous online businesses run by people based in and around where we live. We thought we would shine a spotlight on them by promoting them in this article.


By supporting local online businesses, as well as our high street shops, we're investing in our own communities which strengthens the local economy by creating jobs and increasing investments into the area.


If you have a local online business (see below for further definition of an online business) based in or around Penistone, Barnsley or the HD8 area of Huddersfield that you would like to promote, please email to be included in the article.

An online business, also known as an e-commerce business or internet-based business, is a type of enterprise that primarily operates and conducts its activities through the internet or online platforms. In an online business, the core operations, including selling products or services, marketing, customer engagement, and often, customer service, are carried out via the Internet. Some examples include online shop, craftsman/woman, virtual assistants, remote fitness coaches, design companies, etc.
