Delivery service from local stores - online & offline
Kiezkaufhaus is an online shop where local retailers offer their products. Cargo e-bikes are used to deliver the customer’s merchandise via same day delivery. This means that it is even quicker than Amazon and is emission free. Kiezkaufhaus connects the comfort of online shopping with a good cause by supporting local, independent stores. After all, they are the institutions which characterize a city and should not be replaced by big, anonymous franchises.
GIVES YOUR CITY A FACE
Local retail stores make a city individual, so we need to keep them. Unfortunately more and more of them close down and big franchises take over. To buy at Kiezkaufhaus supports local stores with business.
IMPROVES THE CITY‘S FINANCES
A medium sized city with a population of 270 000 people loses around 18 million Euro in commerce taxes each year due to online shopping. And this number does‘nt even consider other aspects, like local jobs, which also suffer from declining retail.
PROTECTS THE ENVIRONMENT
Delivery wih cargo electric bikes instead of trucks relieve the traffic and preserve the environment. Potentially 51% of inner city transportation could be taken over by cargo bikes. Additional to a better CO2 balance atmospheric pollution would be reduced.
