A Darlington wine merchant has introduced several new measures to ensure business continues despite the ongoing Coronavirus lockdown.

Frivolity Bottle Shop, which is located in Cockerton, has launched a delivery service to cater to customers remaining at home through the pandemic, as well as expanding its team to fulfil demand.

A new website is also on the cards as owner David Tindale adapts to a growing customer base and a new way of sharing his wines, beers and spirits.

With wholesale trade to bars and restaurants and twice-monthly shop events forced on hold, David was determined to not let the lockdown affect his business and took the steps to allow Frivolity to remain as close to ‘business as usual’ as possible.

Fast forward 14 weeks and deliveries are continuing to thrive. Now, David has enlisted the help of local web development company, Webahead Internet Ltd, to accommodate the ever-growing orders.

The new website will allow David to expand his reach beyond his native Cockerton, by extending delivery of Frivolity’s extensive range of products further afield in Teesside and County Durham, as well as offering nationwide next day delivery and gift options.

Frivolity opened in Cockerton in July 2019, after David made the leap to move from market stalls and street food markets to his own premises. Now, he’s looking forward to first birthday celebrations.
