High Concept Statement
Reconnecting Main street to their communities. An App that helps people Shop local and Buy Local. Support their local communities.
There is a perception problem where people believe that Main street businesses can’t compete with big box stores. For starters, buying local is not as expensive as most people think. Shopping local and buying local also provides value in many other ways – like passion, knowledge and expertise of the small business owners that you can’t get at a box store, the proximity of their products and services, and the side effect of sustaining and supporting local businesses that enhance the community. this app will help people discover their community and preserve their downtown main street shops and local business.
Today, customers are shopping at big box stores websites or in person or online shopping at retailers like Amazon.
Customers will discover that there is more value to shopping and buying local. They will want to support their local businesses and connect with their communities. We can entice customers through loyalty rewards programs.
