If a supermarket can mimic a small town and sell everything , while at the same time pretending to be a street market selling fresh made food , then why can't a unified team of shopkeepers with skill and experience mimic a supermarket !

What we'll deliver:

  • Promote activities and goods
  • Recruit shop keepers
  • Secure empty shop premises

Why it's a great idea:

Based on children and schools being the target, schools get funding , families save money , shop keepers get extra income which may just help them keep in business.

Steps to get it done:

  • At same time I need the enthusiasm of investors to participate
  • I need both money from crowd funding
  • And shop keepers to want to make money

All crowd funders welcome , but i need help in securing massive funding from commercial interests such as non market leaders in various branded goods . It's a multi pronged approach . Branded good manufacturers , independent retailers , and the general public investing and working together
