Rohlík launched a platform for businesses without an online store
The founder of online food retailer Rohlík, Tomáš Čupr, recently launched the internet platform NakupBezpecne.cz, designed for small shops that don’t have one.
In the first phase, the platform will focus on grocery stores, pharmacies and drugstores.
Simply put: a store adds its assortment and customers can shop online from home. They can also choose a time slot, in which they then come to collect their purchase in store and avoid the queues at the checkout.
“We have two goals: to get people out of the queues in the stores and to help the small stores which are suffering now,” explains Čupr.
“In the first phase, the service will mainly focus on small stores across the country, and I hope to convince the chains to get involved,” he added, recalling the current capacity of online supermarkets such as Rohlík.cz, Košík. cz or iTesco is not sufficient.
In addition, the platform should soon be linked with groups of volunteers who bring the purchase to seniors.
The project is also supported by the Ministry of Industry and Commerce and the Union of Commerce and Tourism. “Online shopping is highly recommended and is now absolutely essential under the current emergency regime,” said Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Silvana Jirotková.
At the same time, Čupr launched another project, TelýRohlík, delivering “dry products” (sustainable foods) throughout the country.
