About us

We are in business to save independent retail in Europe!

Across our towns and city centres, unique neighbourhood shops have been overshadowed by large chains and e-commerce giants. To combat this, we’ve created a BtoB wholesale marketplace designed to help independent retailers to compete against larger competitors and thus maintain a connected community of stores, brands and shoppers in the places we live.

Established in 2019 in France, we’ve since expanded to other European countries, including Spain, Germany, UK and the Netherlands. Driven by our commitment to customer satisfaction, we constantly innovate to develop cutting-edge tools and services that set new standards in the market.

Get in touch if you are looking to join a purpose-driven, international team that revolutionizes an old-fashioned industry!
