New app to help hungry customers

A FORFAR chip shop is leading the way in the technology stakes.

North Street Chip Shop can now be found on the iFish4Chips mobile phone app.

The free app was developed by the National Federation of Fish Friers (NFFF) to help customers with smart phones.

The app is a database of the nation’s favourite fish and chip shops so if you are in an unfamiliar area you can always find the best place to pick up a fish supper.

There are filters on the app to allow users to locate shops offering specific services such as wheelchair access, vegetarian menu, children’s meals, card payment and much more.

The NFFF hopes that with this app, independent local business can compete with national fast food chains who have large marketing budgets and the resources to place their outlets in high profile locations.

Stuart Atkinson, owner of North Street Chip Shop said: “I hope the app will encourage more people to pull off the by-pass and visit Forfar.”

The app is now available to buy from iTunes and google play.
