Chichester at Home was created in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, by Sara and Gemma who are both friends, and are Chichester-based independent creative consultants.

We’ve always enjoyed working with the community and we realised that we needed to find new ways to shop other than going to the supermarket. We started researching local suppliers who offer home delivery and created the online directory. It really opened our eyes up to how many local independent suppliers were offering wonderful produce in the local area. The directory now includes suppliers offering home delivery and click and collect on meals, groceries, drinks and home and gardenware.

After a fantastic response from suppliers and the public we have continued to grow the service with more listings. We have been overwhelmed with the feedback about how it helped so many people in the local area to shop safely. We’ve now listed over 100 suppliers in the Chichester area since March and we also offer a monthly newsletter, run regular competitions and recently expanded the website with an online shop.
