ME Estate Agents and Virtual Farnham have teamed up to make Farnham truly virtual. Using ME Estate Agents’ virtual scanning technology, the popular local online resource and estate agent have teamed up to future proof Farnham’s high street. The scans will enable customers to explore the shops, cafes, restaurants and other local businesses virtually, browsing the shelves behind doors before making an online purchase or visiting the shop once opened.
The idea was sparked by the uncertainty surrounding businesses ability to trade during lockdowns and the likelihood of future lockdowns or limits on businesses ability to trade. It is hoped this will be the next step in the evolution of the popular website and support local businesses who otherwise may not be able to remain open. Some 20 local businesses have already gone ‘virtual’ including Ruby Jones, Vaughan James Chemist, Roost and Beverley Edmondson, with more being added daily.
