The Coastal Market was built in response to community demand for a comprehensive listing site for local businesses, and for the site to be made available at an affordable price.
The Coastal Market website is primarily about bringing together the many and varied businesses that are run by Pohutukawa Coast locals. Having all local businesses on a single site will make it much easier for the community to see what's on offer and to support these businesses.
While there is an estimated 10,000 local residents across Beachlands, Maraetai and Whitford, the site uses modern Search Engine Optimisation techniques to reach a much wider online market. Local businesses are able to benefit from the innovative online approach and modern website technology at an affordable price.
The site was originally developed in 2016 by Alan and Sarah Pickering who live locally in Spinnaker Bay. In late 2017 ownership moved to another local couple, Stacey and Richard Euston.
