A new business called Good Sixty has launched in Bristol, making it easier than ever to ‘shop local’. 

Bishopston boy, Chris Edwards, has set up the internet shopping site with a vision to help make Bristol’s best independent food stores more accessible to everyone.

Chris said: ““I’ve always had Bristol’s Gloucester Road on my doorstep and value the wealth of independent shops there. Good Sixty wants to help make shops like these a viable shopping option for even the busiest Bristolians and visitors to the city.  Many people want to support their local high street more but simply don’t have the time to buy groceries from specialist shops or hunt out their local producers. By showcasing them all in one place shopping locally becomes much easier."

Good Sixty delivers great food to your door, but it’s from your local greengrocer or butcher. All the shops offer imaginative 'bundles' which make shopping this way even easier.

Over 25 retailers are selling their wares through Good Sixty, including with 14 categories listed so far: greengrocers, wholefoods shops, butchers and Halal butchers, bakers, fishmongers, cheesemongers, delis, patisseries, wine merchants, micro-distilleries and more.  You’ll even find a growing number of Bristol’s favourite cafes and restaurants on the site too.

Gloucester Road institution Scoopaway offer Bundles for making bread, curries and cakes. Check out the family fish box from The Fish Shop and the perfect gin and tonic kits from Bristol’s very own micro-distillery, Psychopomp on St Michael’s Hill.
