The Local Buyers Club has four very simple goals: to save you money, highlight London’s best independent and small-chain businesses, better connect communities and support projects which benefit those in need.
Launched by husband and wife team Basil and Jenna Fansa, the club is expanding area by area with great care taken to choose fabulous local and small online businesses.
It’s the natural next step for us – having co-founded the FamilyCard, a popular discount card which launched in Stoke Newington in 2014.
We love discovering new restaurants and niche shops, but are all too aware of the lure of big online stores. By approaching businesses with a strong group of potential customers, we’re able to negotiate some brilliant discounts – saving buyers money and generating trade.
We have a strong sense of community and charity, our sister company StokeyParents collected new toys for thousands of children living in poverty in Hackney at Christmas for the past three years, and we are avid supporters of Save the Children, Cancer Research, Calaid and local Foodbanks. We welcome the opportunity to support projects in the communities served by the Club.
We are also proud to be a member of the East End Trades Guild which works to build a voice for effective action on the common interests of small and independent businesses.
