Good Sixty has recently launched in Oxford with an online ordering and delivery platform. “But” I hear you cry, “haven’t we got loads of businesses doing that already?” Yes, we have, but this one’s actually different, and I’ll tell you exactly why you’ll want to use it.
The organisation launched in 2016 with a single purpose; to support small retailers and producers specialising in food. The plan was to bring these small shops together as one collective force online, so that they could compete with large supermarkets and national veg box schemes as a sustainable online grocery solution.
Good Sixty currently operates in Bristol, Bath and London’s Borough Market, and now Oxford. The service makes it easier than ever for the city’s shoppers to support local food retailers, artisan producers and market stalls, while enjoying a sustainable shopping experience as convenient as that of an online supermarket delivery.
Six reasons you’ll Love Good Sixty…
1 – It’s not takeaway, it’s retail
There are plenty of delivery options in Oxford, and yes, some also offer more than that. Good Sixty offers deliveries from independent retailers and artisan producers. Think Happy Cakes, Gatineau, Bearded Viking…
2 – One delivery from multiple businesses
Pick and mix to your heart’s delight from your favourite local business; as part of a single order, with one checkout. Assuming all the items are available for delivery the same day, the items will all arrive as a single delivery – meaning less hassle, fewer delivery charges (the local delivery fee is £3.50) and fewer delivery miles.
There may be some instances where some businesses more time to prepare your order, but you can select to split the delivery or have it all delivered at that later date.
3 – Delivery by electric vehicle
I’ve had two deliveries so far – one as a gift from Good Sixty to test the service, and another from an order I placed later – both arrived in an electric van. The organisation also uses e-cargo bikes in other locations, thus reducing emissions.
4 – Good Sixty also offer ‘artisans by post’
5 – Loads of great local businesses are already signed up!
Some of our favourites include: Missing Bean, New Ground Coffee and Jericho Coffee Traders, Pickle & Lime (check out that beautiful produce above ☝), L’altre Vi wine, Skogen Kitchen, as well as those we highlighted earlier
6. It’s not just food and drink anymore
Good Sixty has since added a number of other offerings to the site, including plants and flowers from The Oxford Garden in the Covered Market, and baby toiletries by post from Green Monkeys in Bristol.
We’re looking forward to seeing who else signs up, and will definitely be ordering more!
Good Sixty gifted us a voucher so we could test out the service, all views remain our own and we’ve ordered from them since!
