The Councillor for Commercial Services, Silvia Garcia, wishes to emphasize the importance of improving Internet presence at this time of confinement

The councillor for Commerce and Consumer products has been developing the guide "Shops near you". It includes a description of local shops with updated information before the State of Alarm (Lockdown) was declared, where citizens can find shops’ timetables, address, telephone number, and if a home delivery service is offered. The guide can be downloaded on the municipal website under the banner 'shops nearby'..


Furthermore, Councillor Silvia García, has indicated that those interested in appearing in the guide can send an email to the address: givingthe name andtype of establishment, theiraddress, telephone number, locationand if they offera home delivery service,in order to provide greaternumber of shops, since some of them have noinformation on the Internet.


The network is provinga great ally at this time of confinement, therefore MsSilvia Garcia has emphasizedthe importance for shops toimprovetheir image on the internet by updating their data. To do this, the Councillor advises shops and establishments to includetheir timetablesand telephone numbers eitheron websites, social network or search engines wherepotential customers can find the relevant information.


'Improving theirimage produces greater brand recognition, greater economic gains and a better perception of the business' explained the Councillorwho added that 'everytrade plays apart online and knowing how to take advantage of this opportunity will help to better face the current difficulties causedby the health alert, which may be affecting the financial scenario.


Once the State of Alarm is over, the Councillor for Commerce and Consumer Products will launch a plan to support local trade, where citizens are encouraged to use the shopping facilities available in the municipality, and at providing at the same time a complete digital transformation for the establishments themselves.
