There is a new context to see the purchase of goods and services in Porto and that is the "Shop in Porto" app, the new electronic commerce online platform to promote traditional trade in town.
The app will provide useful and timely information regarding the type of business and products requested, and each business is entitled to an individual page with detailed information for promotion purposes. The app runs both in Portuguese and in English.
The app will provide useful and timely information regarding the type of business and products requested. Previous registration is required.
This initiative is part of the Porto City Hall strategy to boost and increase the sector attractiveness and to raise the profile of street retail trading and increase its visibility for the population.
"Shop in Porto" is the only Portuguese app devoted to traditional trade, and it is possible to do a search specifically selecting the store, the products or the location, or even according to special offers and discounts and itineraries. There will be "Happy Hour" shopping moments and even "sale of the day".
A distinctive aspect regarding this app is the fact that this online platform enhances the stores under the "Porto de Tradição" programme.
It is worth recalling that street retail in Porto opened doors following all the necessary preventive measures due to Covid-19, namely providing hand sanitizer, social distancing measures and mandatory use of facemasks.
