Founder Wycherley  has said:“This is not a Scotland shop – it’s an ‘all things made and produced in Scotland’ shop.

“It’s for amazing Scots, by amazing Scots and for anyone who wants to support the Scottish economy from everywhere in the world.”

“Amaazin.scot is on a mission to make positive social and environmental impacts and disrupt the online domination of sites like Amazon and other giant multinational retailors.”

“With continuing restrictions people can use our website to help support their local economy, local businesses and keep jobs in Scotland”

The sites ambition is for people to be able to shop online for local goods meaning shoppers reduce their carbon footprint at the same time.

Cressa McLaren, Scottish Glass Artist said: “I’m so excited about the new online store for Scotland. Every Scottish business, artist and maker needs a hand to get their goods to market and this is perfect to get some extra sales during these tough times.

“I’ve got a really good gut feeling about this.”
