About nearer

Nearer helps people find local, retail businesses. Fed up with wrong and inaccurate information on Google and other directories, we developed an app, using data gathered and checked by people physically walking the streets, for our own personal use – but friends insisted that we allow them (and now you!) to use it as well. Put us to the test and see the difference!

Beyond becoming an unrivalled directory, Nearer is going to focus on bringing sustainability to UK high streets. Our goal is to help retail businesses to become greener, thereby helping local communities, boroughs and the UK as a whole.

Nearer is still in its infancy, but the founders have built and grown several businesses and we’re very excited about the team we’ve already gathered to drive this project forward. If you have any comments, suggestions or want to be involved, please let us know – we’d be happy to hear from you.
