DSCVR App Launches in North Devon

DSCVR App Logo

The dscvr app digitally connects visitors to our businesses, driving footfall into Barnstaple and our High Street. The app shows what is available all in one place including events, shops, restaurants, bars, culture, theatres and galleries.

Town Centre Management and the Town Council will be adding events and promotions in real time, whilst independent businesses also put up promotions that they are running.

As the pandemic has taught us, supporting our local shops and restaurants has become increasingly important and as many have had to adapt throughout this last 18 months we can see more and more of our local businesses with an online presence. You can download the DSCVR App via the following link – https://www.dscvr-app.com/.

dscvr works with high street brands, local independents, community groups, attractions and venues to bring you content. The dscvr app is so easy to use – you can get at most of their content within 2 clicks…
