A personal trainer, chef and shop assistant all celebrate how awesome their local businesses are

About us

The Edinburgh Lockdown Economy is run by the team behind Edinburgh's suggestion app Vocal. After lockdown started we decided to concentrate on helping our local businesses here. We've been supported by some amazing volunteers who also share our passion for the local independent businesses.

Our hope is that through this project more people will discover new services or things to do that have been made available to them during lockdown.

If you have a business, it's FREE to list it. List yours now.

Thanks,

Tom & Harry
