Kiezkaufhaus – Mall of our hood

Kiezkaufhaus enables users to order at local stores and get their purchases the same day, transported by Cargo e-bikes. For customers this combines the comfort of online shopping with the good cause to support local, independent merchants. For society it boosts local retail and reduces unnecessary CO2 emission from transportation. So inner city traffic calms down and the region benefits from commerce tax.

Jury Statement

The online marketplace Kiezkaufhaus combines social and regional components with ecological considerations and an individual service concept that is tailored to individual users. The incorporation of small and micro suppliers, personal advisors and local vendors helps to reinforce local value chains.  Through a series of touchpoints, the online shopping platform convincingly connects the digital with the interpersonal.
