As the world is introducing concepts as lockdown and social distancing, schools are closing and people are in self-isolation, local businesses are hit hard. Where big online retailers will likely to be able to continue business as usual, small independent shops will feel the hurt of measures taken. This initiative, Koop lokaal Doetinchem, or Buy Local Doetinchem, is launching a platform where inhabitants of the Dutch town can buy online from local shops.
