Every day more local entrepreneurs are disappearing under pressure of foreign e-commerce and their web shops. However, there are so many benefits to buying local: it's better for the environment, for the economy and moreover, the experience of buying locally is often great added value.
Together with UNIZO we came up with the term 'Winkelhier'. A Winkelhier is a name for all local entrepreneurs, a quality mark that they can be proud of. Businesses can integrate the Winkelhier logo on their webshop or shop window to show that you are buying locally from them. In addition, consumers are doing the act of 'winkelhieren', which is to buy local consciously.
