  • 2019 Innovation Award Winner - NearSt

    Near St - a solution that drives footfall by integrating with a store’s POS to identify available product and connect it in real-time to local shoppers’ online, was announced at the overall winner for the 2019 Innovation Awards at RetailEXPO.

    “At a time when the high street is having to re-invent itself to maintain shopper traffic, due in part to rising competition from online, the judges were impressed by NearSt’s technology, which uses a digital solution to solve a physical retail issue. By joining the dots between real-time local search and available product, it is delivering convenience back into bricks-and-mortar shopping experiences to support much needed footfall into stores and on to the high street,” - Matt Bradley, event director for RetailEXPO.

    • It's incredible to be named among so many amazing tech companies as the winner of the RetailEXPO Innovation Award. The high street presents such a lot of value that is just waiting to be unlocked, and our technology, bolstered by our recent partnership with Google, is helping retailers untap these opportunities. The award win is a testament to the team's hard work and dedication of realising our mission to get people back into the shops, and we look forward to being able to help more retailers do just that.
