The inspiration here was drawn from personal experience with a dying city life. Large corporations are impossible to compete with financially for many business owners and it makes the market incredibly formidable for new comers. Without the public knowledge of these small companies, they will continue to be snuffed out in larger quantities, killing life within a city.
What it does
This website unifies all local businesses under a single domain to allow a public brand to be spread and noticed in order to promote the awareness and support of small business owners. This marketplace can be signed up for by any volunteering patron as seen by the open register page on the home page.
