An important issue for the future of your city is emerging with a
immediate opportunity to seize: the local e-commerce !
Do your local businesses see their business numbers drop dangerously? They disappear little by little? It is because they suffer, as in most large cities, the effects of different factors:
The economic crisis
The consumer has become cautious and limits his purchases.
Between incessant works, uneasy traffic and lack of parking, the consumer has gradually deserted the city center.
The advent of e-commerce
7 out of 10 Belgians buy on the Internet. Small shops and retailers, unlike large retailers, generally do not have the skills or the budget to create and maintain an online store.

The City of Mons testifies
« Our historic heart and its shops are not always easy to access. Add to that the crisis: Mons was seeing its local shops gradually disappearing ... We could not stay idle! To boost the commercial activity of our city center, we launched an innovative initiative with NearShop. Our local shops were quickly sidelined by the ease of the system and the reduced subscription. And Mons can today boast of being a real smart city with its website www.shoppingmons.be! »
